The first challenge of round two of the Siva Afi kick started last night and what a night it turned out to be. 

The two Hotels that went head to head were Sheraton Hotel Mulifanua and Return to Paradise Resort. 

In spite of the pouring rain, the warriors never lost a single step on fighting for their chance to advance onto the next round.
