Speaking to the players through a video message at the jersey presentation last night, Bainimarama says many in the media may compare this game against Wales to that of the fight between David and Goliath.

He says the world often does see Fiji as David, the small underdog nation facing down the big boys of the rugby world especially with their money and resources. 

Bainimarama told the players to believe in each other as the nation is with them.

Fiji has played against Wales three times in the Rugby World Cup; 2007, 2011 and 2015. We only beat Wales 38-34 in 2007.

Fiji plays Wales at 9.45 tonight.
