Transfer News: Bath and England star pens long term deal
Bath have confirmed that Semesa Rokoduguni has signed a new long-term contract with the Club.
Rokoduguni has spent his entire professional career with the Blue, Black and White, scoring twice on his debut against Dragons in November 2012. The winger has continued his prolific try-scoring throughout his time in the West Country, with over 50 tries in his 126 appearances to date.
A serving soldier in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, Rokoduguni 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 setup, 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.”

Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder, added: “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.
“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.”
