Bati rest day

Elenoa Baselala In Brisbane, Australia
Tuesday, November 21, 2017

THE Vodafone Fiji Bati team spent most of yesterday relaxing, but had an hour or so of recovery session at the Southbank in Brisbane, Australia.

Players had a pool session and finished with stretching exercises.

"I think for all of us we want to put what happened in the week behind us now. Now we focus on the next few days really to get preparation right.

"We need to make sure we have enough time to get over the bumps and bruises from the weekend and be ready.

"We have pretty much come through the game in good shape, only few bumps and bruises.

"It was a tough physical match(on Saturday)…for Mick Reid (trainer), in his program it is all about rest and recovery and for the body to be back to 110 per cent as quickly as possible."

While Fijian fans celebrated all over the globe on Sunday, the Fiji Bati team travelled to Brisbane.

"It (the win) was amazing and definitely announced ourselves to the Rugby League World that Fiji is a country on the rise.

"The general mood is that everyone was in the mood to just sit quietly after the game and just soak in what they have achieved.

"It hasn't hit home in its entirety because we got a short week in front of us," Civoniceva added. Fiji is injury free except for minor bumps and niggles.
