"No hesitation" for Rokoduguni in staying at Bath Rugby

Semesa Rokoduguni will be staying at Bath Rugby for at least another two years, the Club is today delighted to confirm.

The dynamic winger, who is a Lance Corporal and reconnaissance tank soldier in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards in the British Army, mixes power and pace to devastating effect on the rugby pitch. Since joining the West Country side in 2012, Rokoduguni has made 70 appearances in the Blue, Black and White, scoring 27 tries to date.

"Roko is an incredible talent, especially considering he’s still at a relatively early stage in his professional rugby career," said Mike Ford, Bath Rugby’s Head Coach. "He’s a complete professional on and off the pitch, and I know he’s just going to keep getting better and better. We’re delighted he’s stayed, and are excited to see the next stages in his progression as a player."

An unpredictable threat in attack and staunch in defence, Rokoduguni, originally from Fiji, earnt his first England cap in November 2014 in the narrow 21-24 loss to World Champions New Zealand.

"I had no hesitation in continuing my career here at Bath," commented Rokoduguni. "My family are settled in Bath, and I’m really enjoying being part of the very talented squad here. I feel I’ve developed a lot as player since I first joined, and that’s down to the team and coaches here at Bath. I’m excited about where we can go as a team, and I’m looking forward to playing a role in that."
