Flying Fijians can: Caucau
Former Flying Fijians flyer Rupeni Caucau believes the side picked for the 2019 Rugby World Cup next month has all it takes to do the job.
He played for Fiji during the 2003RWC in Australia and was rated one of the best wingers in the world.
He was part of the Achieving Your Impossible Rugby programme that ran a clinic for children at Churchill Park, Lautoka yesterday.
“We are in a tough pool with Australia, Wales, Uruguay and Georgia. But even though they have big names, they have two legs just like us. I believe Coach John McKee and his men can come back with a good result.” Caucau congratulated the players
that have been chosen to be part of the 32- member team.
“I congratulate the players for being picked to represent the nation,” he said.
“The message to them is that they have to play for their country and the jersey. They have to have to play hard and we will be supporting and watching them on the television.”
He was among the former rugby reps such as Viliame Satala and Isake Katonibau conducting clinics to children 9 – 13 years old in Suva and Lautoka. Former national 7s reo Katonibau: “It is all about building and nurturing the skills of the children. AYI is all about empowering the children, achieving the impossible. It is an initiative that I brought about to inspire the children to have limitless thinking. Sponsors includes Kombat Sportswear, McDonald’s, Pacific Voyage Drua are inviting other corporate bodies to join in help empowering children in Fiji.
The group will be at Albert Park, Suva today and Labasa Special School on Saturday.
