In a tight game where the lead exchanged hands many times Roko had a couple of fine runs only to be hauled down short of the line. He had a close support role in England’s second try but otherwise had few opportunities with ball in hand. One thundering tackle on Hosea Gear drew gasps from the crowd as the All Black was knocked some 15m back.
Other Army connections included Daz Percy (RLC) who was England’s baggage master. The BaaBaas head coach was former Army cap and back row forward Dean Ryan (Royal Engineers)
