It's becoming a seasonal tradition and this year is no different. Agen and Fiji winger Rupeni Caucaunibuca has failed to turn up for preseason training and no none knows where he is!
It's nothing new. "Cauca," one of the most prodigious talents ever to come out of the Pacific Islands, has earned a reputation for going Absent Without Leave and this season the Agen staff have been left frustrated again.
The 30-year-old Fijian was even given extra holiday time to return to Fiji and was expected back on July 12 rather than June 26 like the rest of the squad.
The club have not heard from "Rup," who as a result has missed Agen's preseason training camp in Brommat. He will also no doubt miss the Top 14 newcomers' first friendly match against Narbonne on Saturday.
He had entered into negotiations with the Brumbies in June with regards to a possible return to Super Rugby, but nothing came off those discussions.
Agen have declined to comment on the Caucaunibuca's absence.
Thought he might have turned a corner after the tests for Fiji, obviously not..
