Rokocoko set for Racing move

Date published: July 27 2015

Former All Black winger Joe Rokocoko will join Racing 92 next season from Bayonne according to reports in France.

Bayonne were relegated at the end of last season from the Top 14, and have made it clear in recent weeks that they would not be able to retain Rokocoko on his current contract.

A number of clubs have reportedly been interested, with Bordeaux believed to be leading the race for his signature at one stage.

However according to L'Equipe, Rokocoko has struck a deal with Racing, where he will join former All Black teammates Dan Carter and Chris Masoe next season.

Rokocoko has been in France since 2011 and has played both centre and on the wing for Bayonne.
