Joe Rokocoko was a player whose attacking qualities are without question.  

He had a disappointing season by his own high standards in 2009 and missed out on the All Blacks’ end of season tour to Europe. 

But he showed remarkable determination to hit back in 2010, upping his workrate to become the top try scorer for the Blues and reestablishing himself as an integral feature of the All Blacks backline.  

Rokocoko had the distinction of having played for both the Blues and the All Blacks before appearing in provincial rugby for Auckland. At the end of the 2011, Rokocoko signed with French club Aviron Bayonnais.
