Joe Cokanasiga joined the academy ahead of the 2016/17 season and his stock rose sharply with impressive outings during London Irish’s march to promotion from the Championship.
The Fijian born flyer was part of Eddie Jones’ England set-up that travelled to Argentina in the summer of 2017, a hamstring injury preventing him from playing in the two tests.
On arriving back to London Irish, Cokanasiga signed a four-year contract extension ahead of the club’s return to the Aviva Premiership. Stellar displays in the Aviva Premiership earned him a call-up to the England training squad in the build-up to the 2018 NatWest Six Nations.
Cokanasiga scored his first Aviva Premiership try against Leicester Tigers on Saturday 6 January as Irish were narrowly defeated 19-15.
