Jocelino Suta (born (1982-11-18)18 November 1982 in Port Vila [1]) is a French rugby union player who plays as a lock for RC Toulonnais.

After his birth in Port Vila, capital of the Republic of Vanuatu, planted in the heart of the Pacific near to Fiji, Jocelino Suta grew up in Wallis-etFutuna, a French archipeligo, from where his parents originated, and then in New Caledonia where he was educated from the age of 10 years.

He is the cousin of prop Mikaele Tuugahala. After the 2007-08 Rugby Pro D2 season led to a promotion for Stade Montois to the Top 14, he planned on joining Racing Métro 92 Paris. Since the club stayed in Pro D2, he moved to RC Toulonnais, another promoted club. In May 2013 he played as a replacement as Toulon won the 2013 Heineken Cup Final by 16–15 against Clermont Auvergne.[2]

Suta debuted for France in 2012 against Australia on 10 November.[3]
