Host Need To Find Form

Rewa, fresh from their failed OFC Champions League campaign will need to find their form from among their local talents.

The Delta Tigers are the dark horse in Group B behind Vodafone Premier League front runners Lautoka and Suva.

They have been consistent in their national league outings, but will need to find another gear, to match motors with the top two tipped sides from this group.

The Reds have quality players in their ranks to make the difference under the guidance of coaches Marika Rodu and Tagi Vonolagi.

The Delta boys play with a lot of heart and often make it a matter of personal pride to take down top teams, particularly traditional rivals Suva.

They have the home ground advantage in their crunch opening match against the Sugar City Boys and will be out to make the most of the draw.

Rewa won their only Fiji FACT title in 2011 and will be out to make a second notch on the cup after missing it out last six years.

The Delta Tigers cannot be dismissed as they have shown glimpse of their big game form and once they get going they can be a real handful for any opposition. Technically sound the side is often let down by bad choices and taking of options by its defense.

Stylish and confident on the ball the side will make other teams think twice about taking them lightly with the inclusion of former Navua, Lautoka, and Ba rep Samuela Kautoga.

They have the game to make it a tough top two finish for other contenders from this pool.
