Tavua file Navua protest, wary of drop

By Sunil Sharma

Tavua FA has filed a protest against Navua for fielding Inia Boko in their 0-1 loss in a National Football League game played at the weekend at Nausori’s Ratu Cakobau Park.

Association acting president, Sailesh Kumar told FijiLive they have sufficient evidence to prove that Boko was not supposed to play Sunday as he was supposed to be serving a match ban for double yellow cards.

“Boko was supposed to miss Sunday’s game,” Kumar said.

“For a similar reason, our points were deducted based on a protest filed by Nadroga. We are confident of winning this protest.”

Fiji Football Association chief executive officer, Bob Kumar confirmed receiving the protest from Tavua soccer.

“I can’t give any more details pertaining to the protest,” Kumar said.

Tavua FA’s protest follows a motion by districts and league sponsors, CJ Patel, at a meeting last Saturday in Suva that the number of participating teams in the 2013 NFL should be reduced to eight from 10.

The motion, if approved by Fiji FA’s Board of Control means Tavua, currently placed ninth and Savusavu at the tail end will be relegated automatically.

Should the protest go in Tavua’s favour, they move up to eighth spot and Navua drop and Savusavu drop to the bottom two.
