Ex-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 Auckland Blues and has established himself as a mainstay of the starting XV.

During his Test career, Rokocoko scored four hat-tricks - against France and Australia in 2003, England in 2004 and Romania in 2007.

He hit a try drought in the latter stages of his All Black career and scored his first try since the 2007 Rugby World Cup against Italy in June 2009.

The towering 29-year-old back has yet to score for his French club.
