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.

  • what a winger. would have to be alongside lomu as greatest all black winger of all time. pity about the injuries though. i hope in the tri nations he flattens that habana lad. habana is over rated for sure

  • Haha, we will see habana has too much gas and has put on the kilo's to become one of the worlds best wingers. plus habana is a left wing and to is joe, so the liklihood of them meeting is very low.

  • Habana has pace, Roko has pace and upper body strength.... rupeni caucau, would burn both of them though.

  • rocko is undoubtedly phenominal with great pace, strength ,tackling, handling ability and the dancing feet.he may be the best allround winger in the world, however he is not the quickest winger in world rugby, but he is a close third, i believe the race is beetween habbana and caucau, and i reckon caucau fully fit can outpace anyone...no question

  • 1. Habana is only 0.5923 seconds quicker than smoking joe in straight line speed.
    2. Rokocoko is slightly more economical only using 5 litres of water per kilometer and so he can go into rucks and fly through the middle.
    3. Both are aerodynamically designed with short hair. Rokocoko has the edge with his sharp face providing less wind resistance whereas Habana has the edge with his huge nostrils providing excellent air intake.
    4. Large Exhausts depends mainly on sexuality but neither seem to be open to their personal life so this aspect is under development.
    5. Both run on a secret green fuel
    6. Both try to imitate some sort of bird when scoring a try. Rokocoko with his head pushing back like a goose and Habana with his shoulders spreading wide like a sparrow. Thus leading experts to believe that engineers designed these two with environmental standards being met.
