England will add a whole new dimension to their pre-Six Nations preparations by calling up a Fiji-born wing currently serving in the British Army. The strong, pacy Semesa Rokoduguni of Bath and the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards will be an eye-catching addition to the England Saxons squad to face Irish Wolfhounds next week and could yet develop into a late contender for Stuart Lancaster's 2015 Rugby World Cup side.
Rokoduguni, 26, will become the latest overseas-born player to be invited to wear the red rose, having confirmed his return to fitness by scoring two second-half tries in Bath's comfortable 54-13 Amlin Challenge Cup win against Bordeaux-Bègles. He qualifies for England via residency, having served in the British army since 2007 and toured with his regiment in Afghanistan as a reconnaissance tank soldier.
