Fiji winger's future with France in doubt

10:56 am on 25 August 2006

The Fiji winger Rupeni Caucaunibuca's future with his French club Agen is in serious doubt after he failed to return from Fiji.

Caucau who has a history of not turning up had been absent unexcused from pre-season training since July 10th.

Caucau is reported to have been in hospital in Fiji after contracting a virus, but has since been discharged and was due to turn up in France to return to competitive rugby within the next three weeks.

His agent has now flown to Fiji to clear the matter up, although Agen's general manager, says they can cope without him.
