No Major Celebration For Rewa

There will be no major celebration in Rewa’s Vodafone Fiji FACT victory as the Delta Tigers have moved their focus on the Vodafone Premier League.

Association president Nazeel Buksh says the aim is to win the national league and also begin preparations for the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants.

“We in the middle of the season. A very important season for Rewa itself, we in the middle of the national league, we just in top three aiming to win this national league so any plans we will be keeping in mind it do not disturb our preparation for league and BOG,”Buksh said.

He said the prize money of $15000 belongs to the association and would not be shared amongst the players.

Under Buksh’s leadership Rewa is only left to win the National Premier League title.

It will be the repeat of Vodafone Fiji FACT semi-final this Sunday when Rewa takes on Labasa in the Vodafone Premier League,

The Rewa and Labasa match last weekend was tagged as the game of the tournament where the Delta Tigers won, 6-5.

Despite winning the Vodafone Fiji FACT tournament, Rewa football coach Marika Rodu says, they will need to come down to earth ahead of their Vodafone Premier League clash on Sunday.

Rodu said their win at the Fiji FACT plays no part in their focus and preparation for the premier league.

“It’s really important that we regroup after the weekend and the boys recover in time for our game,” Rodu said.

“While it was good that we won the Fiji FACT, playing in the premier league is a totally different competition altogether.

“Every game from here on is going to be tough and every team will be out to win so we need to step it up a notch.”

Rodu said to be consistent is important if they are to win and move up the points table.

“We need to make sure that we don’t drop in our level of performance but to keep improving and making sure that win our games. Consistency and keeping the momentum is very important, the boys need to focus on the next task ahead of them.

“Facing Labasa is never an easy game as you have seen in the Fiji FACT and I know they will not want to settle for anything less than a win.

“The players are fit to play, lucky for us there are no major injuries and we will get back into the gear by tomorrow.” Rewa will face Labasa at 3pm.
