Misaele Draunibaka: every match is like a final in the Battle of the Giants

Rewa is always a strong side when it comes to Battle of the Giants as the Delta Tigers won five out of the last ten editions of the tournament. This year it is not going to be different as the team coached by Marika Rodu is currently leading the Vodafone Premier League – the top-tier of Fijian football.

Despite being on top of the league, Rewa’s players know that it is important to keep their feet on the ground: “People are saying that we are the favourites, but we are the underdogs,” said Misaele Draunibaka, one of the 22 players selected to represent the team in the tournament that kicks-off on Friday at Churchill Park.
