Junior Roqica is a tall, rangy back rower who played an integral role in the Sharks NSW Cup victory of 2013, before graduating to make his NRL debut in Round 11 of 2014.

Born in Camperdown and playing junior football with Concord, the Holy Cross Ryde student was also part of a 2008 Australian Schoolboys side including Jamal Idris, Aaron Woods and Will Hopoate.

Capable of playing a number of different roles in the forward pack, Roqica remains a valuable commodity for coach Flanagan despite not having featured in the top grade in 2015.

Roqica rates his career highlight as playing with Petero Civoniceva in his final game as a member of the Fiji Bati squad at the RLWC in 2013.
