Cakau plans for the future

It may be the final whistle and game over, for a top Fiji 7s warrior – who could be headed for a role in the preparation of the Rio Olympics.
His absence next season leaves big boots to fill, but Fiji rugby is already laying out a platform to ensure he remains in the system.
32-year-old Fiji skipper, Setefano Cakau may be calling it quits after the London 7’s.
Sideline talk is, he will take up a position on the coaching panel to the 7s World Cup next year and the 2016 Olympics.
Highly-respected by his team-mates and peers, Cakau made his national debut nine years ago in Brisbane.
While proving he is still at his peak, Cakau has indicated to the rugby fraternity that his playing career is coming to an end.
But for now… reclaiming the IRB World Sevens Series crown is his primary focus.
The Glasgow 7s kicks off from May 5-6 and Fiji’s pool opponents are Zimbabwe, Portugal and Argentina.
