Joe Rocks wants to stay in New Zealand

12:14 pm on 6 August 2010

The All Black winger Joe Rokocoko is hoping to extend his contract with the New Zealand Rugby Union over the next couple of weeks.

The 27-year-old was out of favour last year, but has surged back into form this season under the new rule interpretations, and has been an intergral part of the All Blacks' success this year.

Rokocoko was reported to have turned down a million dollar offer to play in France earlier this year and instead wants to stay in New Zealand beyond his current contract, which ends in November.
