Cocksedge started the season on 968 points and wasted no time making inroads to the milestone last week with a 20-point haul against Counties Manukau.

 

The four-time Farah Palmer Cup winner will have a chance to bring up 1000 points when Canterbury face Waikato this Saturday at 1pm live on Sky Sport.

 

If the last game between Canterbury and Waikato is anything to go by, Cocksedge may have to wait a little longer to reach the magical mark, though.

 

In the 2020 Farah Palmer Cup final, Canterbury scored a try with time up on the clock to beat Waikato 8-7 in a low-scoring thriller.

 

Waikato will be eager to take revenge for last year’s heartbreaking loss in the final, while Canterbury will be keen to keep their momentum going from round and motivated to help Cocksedge break the 1000-points barrier.

 

The Black Ferns star is well ahead of Hawke’s Bay’s Emma Jensen on 545 competition points and Manawatu’s Selica Winiata on 528 points.

 

Cocksedge debuted for Canterbury in 2007 at the age of 19 and has scored 63 tries among her 988 points.
