Teamwork is crucial, says Hughes

Rewa Captain Setareki Hughes says teamwork will be vital for them when they face Nadi in Round 7 of the Digicel Premier League in an away fixture on Sunday.

Hughes said they were able to do team bonding and train together this week after six months.

He said the team spirit level is high after the return of players from the national camp this week.

“The match is important but what’s more important is team work and team bonding. For us Rewa players’ brotherhood matters a lot and the boys were able to bond well.”

“We all met after months and the players are really getting into shape. The boys know how important the match is for us and we are eager to beat Nadi.”

“We want to climb the table and the players are determined to play them. Nadi will come as a changed team and that is something we expect from them,” Hughes said.

He admitted that fitness level has been an issue for the Delta Tigers but is confident that players will give the jet setters a good game.  

“Yes, fitness is not the level we want but the players have been working really hard for the past two weeks. They have been going through each and every step so that we are able to counter Nadi from the first whistle.”

“It’s an important game and Rewa will need to play more attacking football. Nadi will try to put up a strong defense because the last time we met we defeated them in both matches,” he added.

Rewa vs Easy Kool Nadi match will kick off at 3pm at Prince Charles Park.
