Rewa upbeat of making BOG last four

By Kalesi Mele

Despite losing to Labasa in the first round of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants in Subrail Park, Rewa team manager Lawrence Nath is confident that his side have what it takes to reach the semis.

“After looking at the team that played, I think it was a very strong team, it was unfortunate that we went down to Labasa, but we will surely reach the semi finals,” he said.

The reigning champions march on with an injury-free squad looking to make amends when they take on Ba in their second match-up at Lautoka’s Churchill Park this Thursday.

Meanwhile, negotiations are still ongoing for James Naka’s clearance for this week’s round of games.

“At the moment it’s a no, he has not been cleared, but we are still working very hard to be able to get him to play for Rewa and we are still negotiating with his club,” Nath said.

“Naka would be a great boost for us. But if it doesn’t happen we have people to fill in his shoes if his clearance doesn’t pull through.”

Thursday’s fixtures
2pm Navua v Suva, 4 Nadroga v Labasa, 6 Official Openin, 6.30pm Rewa v Ba, 8.30 Lautoka v Nadi
