Samesi Rokoduguni scored two excellent tries on his debut for Bath against Newport-Gwent Dragons at the Recreation Ground on 9 November. Roko, a tank crewman with the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and is now enjoying a meteoric rise to rugby fame in the West Country. His first try on five minutes left the Dragons defence for dead. His second try resulted from him ‘shrugging off’ two Welsh defenders before flying under the posts. He was named Man of the Match.
