The man, the myth, the legend.
If you’re a rugby fan in any shape or form, chances are you’ve heard of the legend that is former Fiji star Rupeni Caucaunibuca.
The legendary winger wasn’t around for long, but left a lasting impression that sees him still considered as one of the greatest players to have ever graced a rugby pitch.
Until now his story has been a puzzling one, with disciplinary issues resulting in one of the great careers fading away far too soon. But now thanks to former Samoan forward Dan Leo – we can finally get inside the mind of the man simply known as ‘Caucau’.
Leo – and the Pacific Rugby Players Welfare organisation have put together and excellent documentary that explores his life and serves as a reminder for the work that still needs to be done in terms of Pacific Islanders.
