Rewa’s new re­cruits Kavaia Rawaqa (top inset) and Save­naca Balei­drokadroka (bot­tom inset) carry their hopes in the INKK Mo­bile Bat­tle of the Giants tour­na­ment which starts to­day at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nau­sori. Tough de­fender Rawaqa, who

moved in from Lau­toka, is seen to boost Rewa’s de­fence, while Balei­drokadroka is go­ing to bring the much-needed thrust in mid­field. The play­ers played for the Voda­fone na­tional foot­ball team at the Pa­cific Games in Samoa where they won the bronze medal. Hosts Rewa are in Group B where they face Lau­toka, Nadi and min­nows Nas­inu.

“The pres­ence of these ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers will boost the morale of the team,” said Rewa Foot­ball pres­i­dent Nazeel Buksh.
