Enigmatic former Fijian and Blues Superstar – Rupeni Caucau, has set up a taxi business in his village in Bua, with the help of the “Pacific Rugby Players Welfare”.
Former Manu Samoa player, and Pacific Rugby Players Welfare Chief Executive Officer – Daniel Leo, posted a photo on twitter, of Caucau and his new ride.
The setting up of the business comes after Caucau revealed – he was bankrupt in a Pacific Rugby Players’ Welfare video, earlier this year.
The former winger said he had wasted the money made during his professional career in New Zealand and France, and warned today’s players to be more careful.
Caucaunibuca moved back to his village to live, after retiring in 2014.
The 39-year-old played for Northland in the NPC and the Blues, starring as the Auckland franchise stormed to the 2003 Super Rugby title.
He also played for the Flying Fijians from 2003 to 2010, scoring some memorable tries, at the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia.
