Former Sharks scrumhalf Rory Kockott has received one of the most coveted awards when he was voted as the league’s Top 14 player of the year (Player’s Player of the Year) at the awards ceremony in Paris.
Sport24 reports that the 27 year old was the league’s leading scorer last season with 376 points ahead of nearest rival Johnny Wilkinson who finished on 373 points (what a slacker!)
Kockott’s Castres team claimed their first French title for 20 years when they upset Toulon 19-14 in last season’s Championship final.
The diminutive scrumhalf was instrumental as he scored a try and kicked 8 points to propel Castres to their first league title since 1993.
Sharksworld would like to congratulate Rory on his achievement and we sincerely hope John Smit is taking note of his former teammate’s exploits.
I think I speak for all on SW by saying that Rory would be an asset to not just the Sharks but to Springbok rugby too!!Tweet
