The article features winger Joe Rokocoko of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby football team. Rokocoko holds the record of the first player to score 10 tries in his first five Tests, and the first All Black player to score two or more tries in four consecutive international games. He admits that he got to the stage where scoring tries was all he was worried about. He says he looks at other aspects of his game like tackles, runs and being more consistent.
