Henry gives Rokococo another chance to prove doubters wrong

7:03 am on 28 July 2010

Joe Rokococo will become the most capped winger in All Black history when he runs out onto Etihad Stadium for the All Blacks Tri-nations rugby clash with the Wallabies on Saturday night, passing greats Jonah Lomu and John Kirwan.

Saturday's game will be test number 64 for the 27 year-old, who was recalled to the All Blacks line-up after recovering from a hamstring injury.

With many critical of his selection ahead of a host of in-form wingers Rokococo is a man under pressure and the All Blacks coach Graham Henry says the rocket-man is more than keen to prove his doubters wrong.
