Rocket does it again!

In what is becoming something of a weekly feature, I’d like to quickly draw attention (once again) to former Sharks scrumhalf Rory Kockott’s most recent exploits in France.

After reporting last week on how the enigmatic Kockott’s contract with French side Castres was recently extended after a string of good games – most notably against champions Tolouse where he scored all 24 points in a 24-3 hammering – we’re pleased to report that he’s done exactly the same thing again a week later. In Castres’s very ext game, against Eugene van Staden’s former side Montpellier, Kockott’s boot was responsible for all of the points in Castres’s 21-16 victory.

Keep it up, Rory… at this rate, you’ll end up playing for France one day!

    Wow I thought older for some reason ..He’s in with a chance ..perhaps falling for a gorgeous French girl could fasttrack eligibility.

  • Good for him. Maybe they will move him to 10 – they have done that a few times with their scrummies.

  • Reading things like this just gets my blood boiling, for some reason we just don’t hang on to good talent and then buy has-beens from all over…
    Good for you Rocket, hope all your dreams come true…

  • Rocket was very poor with the Sharks in his last 2 seasons – he was rightly dropped behind Mcleod.

    I’m glad that he seems to have found some form in France, but in addition to the game being slower and more tactical there, maybe he found balance there that he wouldn’t have found here.

    The Sharks gave him enough chances, and dropping him at the time was the right thing to do.

  • Ex-Sharks player. :lol: We didn’t want him and sent him packing.

    maybe his attitude is better than most of his French team mates. :razz:

  • @Big Fish (Comment 14) : Too often players leave SA to go play in Europe against weaker opposition on slower pitches and suddenly they are heroes who we should never have let go. Only to return and be shown up as being nothing more than average.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 19) : I’ll have you know that Rob Linde is renowned as the best scrummaging lock in the French league and Andre Hough tackles like Honiball.

  • @SharonvanWyk (Comment 30) : Hell, at one stage I would have put Frans Steyn on that list as well, but to be honest, my opinion of him has changed somewhat since his stint with the Boks this year. I was actually sad to see him injured because he was a machine at 12. :shock:
