ON THE EDGE
Kockott double dips
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 14:05
Rory Kockott was key to another Castres victory over Toulon as the champions won 22-15 at the Stade Pierre-Antoine.
Kockott kicked seventeen points, including a huge drop-goal after his penalty kick hit the post and bounced back into play.
He is eligible for France next year.
The former Sharks and Lions No.9 was key to Castres winning the Top 14 last season, and while he at one stage considered moving on to other larger clubs, including the likes of Toulouse, he is now firmly committed to the cause and aiming for another title shot.
He out-booted Jonny Wilkinson at the weekend with four penalties, a drop-goal and a conversion.
If all goes well, 27-year-old Kockott, who was top points scorer in the Top 14 last season, could achieve higher honours in the not too distant future.
Earlier this year he spoke of his desire to play Test rugby, preferably for his native South Africa but would be equally pleased to play for France.
* Watch Kockott take two shots at goal in the same play!
