WATCH: Rupeni Caucaunibuca documentary trailer gives us a glimpse into life now for the Fijian legend

A documentary on the career and life of the great Rupeni Caucaunibuca will be released soon after the trailer was posted online by the Pacific Rugby Players Welfare organisation. The documentary features Daniel Leo visiting Caucaunibuca at home in Fiji.

Widely regarded as one of the most naturally gifted players to ever play the game, the man affectionately known as Caucau had an at times puzzling career.

He shot onto the scene with the Auckland Blues in Super Rugby before tearing things up with Fiji at the Rugby World Cup, but his career was littered with misdemeanours and inconsistencies.

Spells in France with Agen then Toulouse showed glimpses of what he can do, but weight and other issues seemed to hold him back at times.

Now, the humble man is living back home in his village and if this trailer is anything to go by, dealing with the challenges of the next chapters in his life.

It looks set to be a touching piece that all fans of the great man will surely enjoy.
