Rokoduguni signs long-term Bath deal


Semesa Rokoduguni has signed a new long-term contract with Premiership side Bath.

The long-serving wing, capped four times by England, looks set to spend his entire professional career at Bath after agreeing fresh terms to remain at The Rec.

Rokoduguni, a serving soldier in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, said: "Bath is where my rugby journey started, and I couldn't think of playing anywhere else.

"It doesn't seem like six years since I made my first appearance. We have a hugely talented squad and coaching set-up, and I know that there are great things to come from this group.

"I am extremely grateful to the British Army for allowing me the opportunity to play for Bath Rugby and for continuing to support me."

Rokoduguni has scored 48 tries in 126 matches for Bath and director of rugby Todd Blackadder expressed his delight that the 31-year-old has extended his stay.

"Roko is one of the most gifted players I’ve ever worked with. He is one of a kind – he has the ability to create something out of nothing, so we're understandably delighted that Roko's committed his future to the club." said Blackadder.

"Our long-term plan is to develop a system around exceptional people and Roko is one of those. He has the attributes which will inevitably support the likes of Joe [Cokanasiga] with his development, which is a huge positive."
