One of rugby's most mercurial talents Rupeni Caucaunibuca has told ESPN he is on the lookout for a new club.
The best that never was: Finding Caucaunibuca
Caucaunibuca is widely regarded as one of the game's most lethal finishers but off-field issues have dogged his 13-year career. Now aged 33, Caucau is fully aware his playing days are coming to an end but he is determined to secure one more contract.
Caucau played in the 2013 ITM Cup for Northland, a move that ended a 22-month hiatus away from the game, but he made just two starts during his time at the team. He is playing in the Hong Kong Tens this week for Tana Umaga's Dragons side and hopes he will catch the eye of a club on the lookout for a new winger.
"Last season was good for me, I had just come back from my knee injury," Caucau told ESPN. "It was a good step for me to go to Northland. I enjoyed it there. At the moment I am looking forward, I am in good shape and I don't want to waste time. My time is going fast. I don't know how many years I have left to play rugby and I am here to work hard."
Caucau added: "My motivation is to try hard in every single game. I need to get that contract to help me and my family. I need someone on the sideline to touch his hat and say 'okay, you're good enough for us'."
