Caucau back for Flying Fijians

11:12 am on 26 May 2010

Fiji rugby 15's coach, Samuela Domoni has named a good mix of experience and youth in his squad to play the Wallabies in the one-off test in Canberra next weekend.

The most notable re-call in the side is that of France based winger, Rupeni Caucau.

Once one of the most feared try scoring wingers in the world, Caucau returns to the Fijian side for the first time since 2006.

A late replacement in the 2007 world cup squad, winger Sireli Bobo is also back in the fold for the first time since that outing.

Australia based front row player - Campese Ma'afu gets his big break at test level while Southland based hooker Tuapati Talemaitoga has also been named in the 24-man squad.

Domoni has named 15 overseas based players with the nine home based boys led by nuggety former Fiji 7s captain and halfback - Emosi Vucago.

Waratahs extended squad winger Nemani Nadolo has also got his big break after he was a star in Australia's Under-20 squad last year when he played as Ratu Nasiganiyavi.

The Fiji squad leaves for Canberra next Wednesday and plays the Wallabies on June the 5th at Canberra Stadium.
