Australia coach Robbie Deans has talked up the return of flying Fijian winger Rupeni Caucaunibuca to international rugby ahead of their one-off test next week.

Caucaunibuca, who plays for French side Agen, is expected to make his first appearance for his country since November 2006 in Canberra Stadium on Saturday after saying he wanted to play in next year’s World Cup in New Zealand.

“I’ve seen him do some remarkable things on the rugby field, things that no-one else in the world has ever done,” Deans told the Australian Associated Press on Sunday.

“He was a remarkable player in his time. I understand he scored 16 tries this year, so he’s still going pretty well.”
