For hardworking Dads, everywhere.
Fijian-born winger Maika Sivo has been an absolute sensation in his first season in the NRL scoring 16 tries for the resurgent Parramatta Eels.
He has quickly become a cult hero in Australia but is only a minimum wage contract worth $72,500 plus $3000 for every NRL match played. Despite that, the 25-year-old sends money back to his parents every fortnight and has even built them a house.
But he is set to be rewarded with a new bumper three-year deal worth in excess of $1 million and recently experienced something that he will never forget with his father leaving Fiji to see him play live for the first time ever.
In a brilliant new video released by NRL sponsors Victoria Bitter, the story of Sivo and his family is an absolute must-watch. It’s also an absolute tearjerker. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
See the heartfelt moment Maika Sivo was reunited with his Dad, Joeli 💙💛
