Former All Black winger Joe Rokocoko has extended his contract with Top 14 club Bayonne until 2015.

Rokocoko, who scored 46 tries in 68 appearances for New Zealand, arrived at Bayonne in July 2011 from the Blues and has established himself as a mainstay of the starting XV although in recent times he has played most of his rugby at outside centre.

Surprisingly, the towering back has yet to score for the French club. He joins former All Black team-mate Neemia Tialata in inking a new deal.

"I'm happy to stay here. It's a relief to come to an agreement with the club so I can now concentrate on my rugby and the second half of the season that awaits us.

"I've found my feet on the field and I'm at ease in day-to-day life. My priority was to stay here and help the club advance."

Bayonne are currently 11th in the Top 14 standings.
