Joe Rokocoko Tribute

Joe Rokocoko Tribute

Josevata Taliga "Joe" Rokocoko was born 6 June 1983 in Nadi, Fiji. He migrated to New Zealand with his family at the age of 5, settling in South Auckland, and attending James Cook High School.

He later won a scholarship to Saint Kentigern College, where he was a member of the 2001 National Secondary Schools team. After an outstanding career with New Zealand international sides at under-16, under-19, and under-21 level, he started playing Super 12 rugby for the Blues in 2003.

Rokocoko is known for his speed and strength which has accounted for his incredible try strike rate. He is a specialist left-winger but has occasionally played on the right wing for New Zealand to accommodate another left-wing specialist, Sitiveni Sivivatu.

Rokocoko made his first appearance for the All Blacks on 14 June 2003 against England. He has so far had a high strike rate for the All Blacks, scoring 25 tries in his first 20 tests, and breaking the All Blacks single-season record for test tries previously shared by Lomu and Christian Cullen

At such a young age, he is already a legend of the game who has loads more to offer in the upcoming years. Enjoy this fantastic tribute compilation.
