Joe Rokocoko

Left for dead...When Mr. and Mrs Rokocoko were picking names for their unborn child, I'll bet they had two picked out right from the start. One for a boy and one for a girl; Joe and Jojo.

And who can blame them? When you've got a last name with that many 'o's in it, you might as well go the whole hog and push it as far as you can. In-fact they were probably pretty disappointed when their child turned out to be a son for precisley that reason.

That disappointment most likely faded though once Joe became one of the best wingers in the world. Like a lot of New Zealand's starting fifteen, Joe wasn't actually born in New Zealand but migrated there from Fiji at the age of five. His dad is said to have bought his first TV in 2003 just so he could see his son play in the world cup. Altogether now: aww...

He remains one of the four best wingers in the entire world... and all of them play for the All-Blacks. Here he is being awesome: (as always)
