It’s more than just a Pacific Nations Cup for Vodafone Flying Fijians fly-half Teti Tela and few others.

The Daliconi villager from Vanuabalavu in Lau will run the show for the side against Tonga tomorrow and he believes all players featuring in the PNC have a bigger goal.

Tela is proud to have his Drua teammates in the side and says for him and others, the Rugby World Cup next year is something they would love to have a shot at.
