    I watched a video of Leinster - Agen on Youtube... saw one of the try, the one where BOD intercepts a pass from Leinster's 22 and run the all pitch to score...

    If you see this try, have a close look to Caucaunibuca...

    Incredible... BOD is like running at f.... top speed to the try line, and you can see Caucau on his side "walking" his way and he's just accelerating a little bit so that at the end he's on BOD...

    Anyway... Brian scored but still... how's a guy that is at leat 10 kilos overweighted... can be that f...... quick !?!?!?

    You have to see that video... Rupeni looks more than relax....

    incredible !

    have a look :)

    Well we Kiwis have seen this all before.....I have seen it in real life....and he really did look freakish in real life!

    The first time I saw him was on TV when he was with Northland as they took on Waikato. Roger Randle was gassing it across field for the line and Rupeni was "jogging" across in cover and simply watching him casually. I think Rupeni was waiting for Randle to step in (which he didn't) and so he never took him down till he was at the line even though he could have way earlier.

    It was well documented in NZ that Rupeni has pathetically slow times in training and that when he gets on the feild where his times can't really be measured he runs like a tiger is chasing him up the road......his speed with rugby boots on is incredible and effortless....yes FREAKISH!
     
  4. He looks kind of fat for a back. I saw some lovehandles there.

    There's props thinner than Caucau, but none with his pace, he's a freak of nature. Incredible how someone that fat can still have that speed.

    i just wish he had more commitment, he could have/still go down as one of the greatest.

    its a pity when u have top class players like that playing for tier 2 nations. they dont get their chance to really perform because all around, the other teammates lose the game for them

    Aye a very good point lora!

    He needs to slim down regardless of his personal life and problems!

    Caucau is the second greatest tragedy of our generation of rugby players (behind Lomu). A player who never achieved what he could have...the difference between him and Lomy though is that Caucau never achieved all he could have been cos he mucked around and didn't care as much.

    That's because he has pride in playing for his country. He could have taken the easy way and played for a Tier 1 nation for the $$$ and fame but he didn't, and for that I salute him.
     
  11. thats a half truth...caucau initially wanted to play for the ab's...his management team seeked eligibility rules and even went to irb but he played for fiji in the sevens and thats final..no other international commitments...he has pride for his country???..funny that..id like to see more commitment for him to regularly play for fiji even without him they harness some of the most exciting players in the world to watch live....rawaqa the lock forward is a freak aswell...

    but caucau???...hes an immense talent...has it been wasted tho???...i just cant wait till world cup 07 when he is playing on a turf he is use to in france hopefully fit enough for the full campaign..who knows..play off potential...anything is possible with rupeni caucau

    i really hope to see brian in action again... i was comparing a photo of my dad with ihs, and i was damn stoked and shocked to see that they looked alike. from where i come from, men from the previous genration(the tough nuts in general) have pockmarks on their face and have that deadset face

    he really doesnt make the most of his talent, and its a waste, because he could become one of the best players in the history, if only he wasnt so lazy and wasnt so arrogant

    From what I know lately, it seems that Caucau could be fired from the SUA (French ProD2), because he didn't come back (once more) for the pre season training. And because they're fed up with all his problems (canabis, car accident under drugs and alcool, being late...)
    Caucau said that he trained with a personal coach and was about to loose 20kg! :bravo: Amazing! And wanted to come back to his best level...

    Check out www.rugbydump.com ... there are a few Caucau clips. I'll post them here:

    Then there are his two beauty tries vs. Scotland from '03, along with the scorcher vs. France.

    CauCau could be an excellent player if he could his priorities right..imagine if he had been playing for fiji this year! His size and pace makes him amazing for a winger. But is very lazy

    I reckon he's just a bighead c*** he had atitude when he 1st started playing for the Taniwha's in Npc. He had a certain cockiness about him, thou he is a very good player but if he can't sort his s*** oh well f*** him.

    Thankfully the Brumbies kicked the Blues' ass in that game, and then went on to win the comp.

    Caucau was great though. It's a shame.
