IT'S only fitting that Southside United's Tai Sakaushi works for a company called Atlass.

Sakaushi, who turns 28 in 10 days time, is an information technology expert for Rockhampton-based aerial laser surveyors Atlass.

Before arriving in the Beef Capital last year and becoming a valuable member of the Southside United Central Queensland Premier League team, Sakaushi lived in Japan, Singapore, the United States and Queensland's capital Brisbane.

He spent time as a kid travelling around the world following his father who worked for audio specialists Pioneer.

After a weekend off due to Clinton's FFA Cup commitments, Sakaushi and his Southside United team-mates tackle the in-form Bluebirds at Jardine Park tomorrow night in Round 4.

While he's always been a fan of football, and has played the sport for the best part of 20 years, the small-in-stature Sakaushi said it could have been different. "I've been playing football for pretty much my whole life," he said.

"I played a bit of rugby when I was in high school, but I'm just not big enough, so that didn't last long."

Bluebirds are coming off a 9-0 win over Emerald Eagles.
