Rokocoko eyeing end of year tour after returning from injury

Returning Auckland rugby winger Joe Rokocoko says he has one eye on the end of year All Blacks tour after being named in the Auckland squad for the match against Waikato in Hamilton on Saturday night.

Rokocoko has been missing from action since breaking a wrist in a Super 14 match in April and knows the first couple of games back will be tough physically.

He admits it's been a long time away from the action and he realises he's bound to struggle with the pace of the game initially.

Rokocoko says he's keen to play well for Auckland and hopefully impress the All Blacks selectors.
