Semesa Rokodunguni last-minute try robs Exeter at the death

Once-capped England international Semesa Rokoduguni scored a dramatic last-gasp try to help Bath snatch an unlikely 13-10 win over Exeter Chiefs at the weekend.

Fijian-born Rokoduguni showcased his incredible feet and strength to fend off the attention of Chiefs flyhalf Gareth Steenson to cross over in the 88th minute to seal victory.

Exeter had scored what many believed to be the winning try 10 minutes from the end when Mitch Lees finished off a dominant rolling maul by the home side, which started on the Bath 22m line.

But Bath, and their talisman George Ford, pressed on well into stoppage time, and it was arguably Ford’s beautifully weighted miss-pass to Rokoduguni – which was nearly intercepted by Ian Whitten – that made the try for Rokoduguni, who streaked in for the winner.

Rokoduguni has yet to add to his only England cap – against New Zealand in 2014 – but has been described by team-mate Dave Attwood as an “unbelievable talent”.

Speaking to the BBC, Attwood said: “He can pretty much do everything – if I could pick one player to be, I’d probably be him. He has got a little bit of ‘razzle dazzle’ – he’s an unbelievable talent.”
