Semesa Rokoduguni was hailed as an “unbelievable talent” after he strengthened his England claims with a brilliant late try at Sandy Park.

The England international wing, who won his solitary Test cap against New Zealand two years ago, struck eight minutes into injury time as Bath claimed a dramatic 13-10 Aviva Premiership victory over west country rivals Exeter.

Rokoduguni produced a superb finish with the game’s final move, brushing off attempted tackles from Gareth Steenson and Olly Woodburn to enhance his bid for England selection in their autumn series opener against South Africa at Twickenham on November 12.

The 29-year-old, who has scored five Premiership tries already this term, would appear to be in a straight fight for the right-wing berth with Marland Yarde to face South Africa. And Rokoduguni’s Bath colleague Dave Attwood praised the flying wing ahead of joining him on England’s training camp in Portugal this week.

“He showed again today what he has been able to do for us all season,” lock Attwood said. “He’s an unbelievable talent. He can kick, he can tackle and pretty much do everything. If I could pick one player to be, it would probably be him.”
