THE Rewa rugby side will be relying on their backline to do the damage against Tavua when the two sides meet in a round six Digicel Cup fixture at Tavua's Garvey Park this afternoon.
Rewa coach Watisoni Ratulevu said he did not want to underestimate Tavua but believed this was the best chance for his team to win their first match of the competition.
He told Times Sport he had the confidence in his backline to fire the team to its first win of the season.
"We will let our backline do most of the running and the hard work," Ratulevu said.
"We know Tavua will be tough and will throw their backline at us but we will use our backline for both attacking and defending," he said.
He said it would be up to halfback, Apete Benui, to deliver quality ball to his backline.
"We have a fast, attacking backline and they are equally good at defence and the main man tomorrow (today) will be Apete (Benui).
"He (Benui) will have to make the right decisions on the field to ensure the backline gets quality ball with which they can attack."
Ratulevu said the team had been working whole of this week to improve on their mistakes that they made in their 17-36 loss to Nadroga last week.
"One of the main weaknesses was the discipline in the team. We gave away a lot of penalties which Nadroga capitalised on and we will not make the same mistakes again because we have talked to the players about it and worked hard to minimise it against Tavua."
Meanwhile Tavua coach Jonetani Savuti is confident of claiming three points from today's game.
He said the side had been working very hard on correcting mistakes from their 5-35 loss to Naitasiri last week at home.
"We saw plenty mistakes in that game, especially our defence," Savuti said.
"The players have worked very hard to work on those mistakes and defence to ensure we don't make the same mistakes tomorrow (today)," he said.
