Army star joins Bath Rugby

Semesa Rokoduguni has signed a full time contract with Bath Rugby, the Club can today confirm.

Rokoduguni, a reconnaissance tank soldier of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards in the British Army, has impressed during a trial period with the Club, scoring tries on both his appearances with Bath United and being relentless in defence.

He has two caps for the Army, scoring four tries against the Royal Air Force and a hat-trick against the Royal Navy at Twickenham in the more recent, which ensured he was awarded man of the match.

The Fijian is a strong presence in the back line, and will add great strength in depth to the Bath squad.

Gary Gold, Head Coach, commented: "Roko really caught the eye playing for the Army at Twickenham earlier in the year, and continued to do so when he came on trial with us. He's worked hard throughout his time with the Army, but has the desire to play professional rugby and we believe he has the ability to do so. He is strong, quick, and very committed, both during games and training, and we're looking forward to having him in the squad."
