Rain or Shine’s sharpshooters, Rey Nambatac and Leonard Santillan, are already adopting a winning mindset as they gear up for the 2023 William Jones Cup, set to commence on August 12 in Chinese Taipei.

Despite the tournament’s three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Elasto Painters are eager to face challenging international competition once again.

In an interview with mainstream media, both young leaders from Rain or Shine acknowledged the tough opposition they expect to encounter in the upcoming event.

Rey Nambatac expressed his excitement about the chance to test their character and gain valuable experience on the international stage.

As a relatively young team, the latest batch of Rain or Shine players is determined to prove themselves.

They are fortunate to have seasoned veterans like Beau Belga and Gabe Norwood, who bring their experience from representing the national team on multiple occasions.

With this mix of youth and experience, Rain or Shine is ready to give their all in the prestigious Jones Cup tournament.
