The world's best winger humbled himself before Fiji yesterday with the plea: Please let me play for my country. Rupeni Caucaunibuca promised that if given the chance, he will put on a much more deadly performance than the one the world watched at the 2003 World Cup in Australia. The Bua flyer scored three breathtaking tries from the two games he played. He was voted the best winger at that tournament. â€œMy desire is to play for Fiji at the World Cup,â€ he said from his village in Bua last night. â€œAnd if given the chance, I will prove my worth to the team and also to the nation. â€œI will perform better than the 2003 World Cup that was held in Australia.â€ Caucaunibuca, who is on suspension for the use of illegal substances, revealed that he had been following the training programme given to him by the FMF Flying Fijians management. â€œI've never lost hope and I'm still waiting for that call from management to join the team.â€ Caucaunibuca's suspension finishes on September 14, the day after Fiji's World Cup opening match against Japan. However, Flying Fijians logistics and operations manager Peter Murphy, in an earlier interview, indicated that Caucaunibuca was a non-issue in the teamâ€™s campaign to the World Cup. He pointed out that while under suspension Caucaunibuca could not be associated with rugby. Caucaunibuca indicated that he would join his Agen Club in France on September 4. â€œI have been in touch with my club over in France and I will join them early next month and if the national team management calls me up then I'm ready to don the national jumper,â€ he said. He warned the Flying Fijians that their next warm-up match against FC Albi on Sunday morning would not be an easy one. â€œItâ€™s a much stronger team than FC Auch,â€ he said. â€œFC Auch is not an easy team either so I was not surprised at the result.â€ Flying Fijians media director Jeremy Duxbury said Caucau would be considered if someone is injured.
