Skipper remembers injured mate in win

“We dedicate this win to Bawai who fractured his leg against Suva in the semi-final and is resting in hospital,” the veteran goalie said.
‘’Also this win is for all the families of the players and Rewa fans who came out in numbers to support and also those who are not here but have Rewa at heart.”
Tamanisau, a police officer by profession, thanked the Rewa officials and players for having faith in him.
“As a captain I was always under pressure but I must applaud my teammates for playing gallantly in all the matches.
“Hats off to the boys who made it happen again this year. We came out victorious in the end as we are the last team standing,” Tamanisau said.
“We needed to score first and which we were successful in doing so. We rectified our mistakes which we committed against Ba in the pool play. It was a team effort.”
Tamanisau was twice lucky in the match when the ball hit the post and were cleared away by his defenders.
“It was one of those days when we got to count our lucky stars after Ba hit the post twice. For us we needed to make a mark in Fiji football. We lost the final in the Fiji FACT and we needed to win the tournament and keep our heads high which we did.”
