Rory Kockott

25th Jun 1986 1.80m/90kg Scrum Half

The exciting, nippy number nine began his professional career in South Africa, where he made a brief appearance for the Golden Lions before moving to the Sharks in 2007. His great attacking ability as well as his solid kicking performances make him a valuable asset for any side.

After earning 50 Super Rugby caps for the Sharks, Kockott signed for Castres where he has become a household name. In 2013 he earned the French player of the year award after helping his side to win the Top 14 competition with a stunning victory against Toulon.

Kockott qualifies to play for France through residency and was selected to play his debut against Fiji in November 2014.

He was included in the French squad for the Six Nations Championship in 2015. Despite only making a handful of appearances for France in that tournament, Kockott was also included in the French squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

The 2020 Top 14 season becomes Kockott's 9th year at Castres.

In March 2021, he signed a new one-year contract extension with the French club.
