Rokoduguni shines in Bath debut

By Sunil Sharma

Fiji Born British Soldier, Semesa Rokoduguni made a brilliant debut for Bath rugby club in England scoring two tries in their 36-15 win over Newport Gwent-Dragons in the LV-Cup.

 Rokoduguni, of the Royal Tank Regiment, scored his first try just eight minutes into the first half before adding a second in the second half.

Bath’s coach Brad Davis saluted the Fijian native for his excellent performance.

"Semesa has only been with us two or three weeks, but he looked pretty dangerous in the first half and he took his try well," said Davis.

The backline player impressed the Bath coach Davis during a trial period with the Premiership club last month which paved his way into the club.

He has two caps for the Army's rugby side, scoring seven tries, and has previously had a trial at Newcastle.

Roko caught the eye playing for the Army at Twickenham earlier in the year, and continued to do so when he came on trial.
