Taveuni happy to play finals in Ba

By Sunil Sharma

Taveuni has welcomed Fiji Football Association's decision to host the two legged Premier final playoff at Ba's Govind Park next weekend.

The northerners who are financially stricken would have found it hard to make a special trip to play Tailevu Naitasiri in Nausori and then return again to Viti Levu a week after for the Inter District Championship at Govind Park.

Coach Billy Hussein told FijiLive the decision comes a sigh of relief to them and they would remain in Ba after the playoff to prepare for IDC and save up on their costs.

"We do not have the finances to travel back and forth and it is a great relief for us that we will play in Ba and remain there afterwards to prepare for the IDC," said Hussein.

"The only obstacle for us will be that our schoolboys will miss classes while in Ba. Our team comprises of many schoolboys and some may have to stay back home due to studies. We do not want their studies to be affected, therefore we will not add pressure on the young players."

"We are preparing well for both the games and should give Tailevu Naitasiri a good run for its money. It is the final of the Premier division and we will try to give our very best," he added.

The two games will be played on October 6th and 7th.
