Eight back to help Sorokoba

SOROKOBA will be bolstered with the return of eight members of the Ba team to defend the Elisa Engineering Challenge trophy against Balevuto at the Ba Market ground this afternoon.

Ba skipper Tui Fagalele will spearhead the defending champion in their quest to maintain their unbeaten run in six challenges.

Tournament official Salesitino Gukirewa said the return of the eight players would strengthen the side.

“This game will be crucial for Sorokoba as it will be their last title defence,” he said.

“The return of the eight Ba players will make it difficult for Balevuto to win the title.

“Sorokoba has been consistent throughout the season and they are expected to come out firing in this last game.

Gukirewa said Balevuto though would face an uphill battle but would give the champions a god run for their money.

“Balevuto will also be vying for the title and they will do all they can to upset the champions,” he said.

“Anything can happen and it will be an interesting clash as both are aiming for the same goal.”

The game kicks off at 3pm.
