Speaking to Scrummage, Wokorach talked up his goal of playing in the French top flight, just three tiers away.

“Top-flight rugby is my target. This means helping my team achieve its targets by doing what is expected of me by the coaches. We achieved step one which is a promotion to league/federal 2. So one by one makes a bundle we shall get there,” he said.

The former Heathens and Kabras Sugar fullback signed a one-year contract with Bourges XV last year and had his debut against Uzerche.
