Fiji born Smokin’ Joe “Rocketman” Rokocoko was known for his blistering pace, elusiveness, gamebreaking abilities and being an expert finisher. The former All-Black lit up Super Rugby for the Blues from 2003 through to 2011 putting together an impressive highlights reel.
Rokocoko was part of a unbelievable backline that included All-Blacks Doug Howlett, Mils Muliaina, Carlos Spencer and Rupeni Caucau. He got his first taste of silverware in his rookie season when the Blues beat the Crusaders in the Super 12 Final 21-17.
In the same year he earned selection for the All-Blacks World Cup squad, ultimately cementing his spot as the starting left winger, a position he would make his own playing in a total of 69 tests up until 2010 including a second World Cup in 2007. To this day Rokocoko is tied second on the all-time All-Blacks tryscorers list with 46 along with Julian Savea and Christian Cullen.Embed from Getty Images
He would move on from Super Rugby and the All-Blacks and would play the rest of his career in France for Top 14 clubs Bayonne from 2012-2015 and for Racing 92 up until his retirement in late 2019. He won his second major title with Racing in the 2015/2016 season.
He retired a household name and a rugby legend in both New Zealand and Fiji.
