November 27, 2014. Battle of the Giants champion Rewa Fiji and hosts AFFA Sydney shared a point each after their match ended in a nil-all draw last night.
The Marika Rodu coached side was tagged as the match favourites prior to the kick-off but all was shadowed by the home side boys displaying a contrsuctive football to deny the visitors from scoring.
The Delta Tigers had numerous goal scoring chances, however players like Setareki Hughes, Savenaca Nakalevu and Elvin Prasad failed to capitalize on the created opportunities.
Epeli Saukuru was also introduced in the second half to add more fire-power upfront, but the stubborn Sydney defenders stood tall in the backline.
Rewa faces high flying Suva in the final match of day two at 11.45 (Fiji time) tonight.
