Former Rewa marksman Rau dies

Former Rewa striker Sakiusa Rokoseba has passed away.

Fiji Football Association President Rajesh Patel said the entire football fraternity is saddened with the loss of a loyal servant to football.

He said Rokoseba, who was fondly known as Rau, was a key attacker for the Delta Tigers in 1970s and was a well-known mechanic in Nausori.
“Rau was a great footballer back in the 70s and had always been a motivation to his teammates.”

“I convey my heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolence to the grieving family and I pray to the Almighty that his soul rests in peace.”

Rokoseba died last week in his village in Natuva Taivugalei, Tailevu and his funeral was held today.
