THE Rewa Football Association has issued a stern warning to their import players to deliver the goods or risk being dropped.
Solomon Islanders James Naka and Abraham Iniga will feature for the Delta Tigers in the Courts Inter District Championship that starts today at Ba's Govind Park.
Association president Nigel Khan said the two players had been reminded to prove their worth or they would not be considered in future.
He said the Rewa under-21 players had shown a lot of potential by playing in the finals of the Fiji Sun/GP Batteries National U21 League competition and might be given a chance to prove themselves.
"Naka and Iniga has helped us win tournaments in the past but have dropped in form recently," Khan said.
"So we would like to remind them that if they want to continue playing for Rewa, they must prove themselves in the IDC," he said.
"Because the money we use on them, we can invest in our under-21 players and build these local players to become district reps."
Rewa are pooled with Nadi, Suva, Savusavu and hosts Ba and face an uphill battle to win back the title they last held in 2010.
"The team has prepared well, they had been in camp for the past two weeks and has a mix of youth and experienced reps.
"They are coached by Marika Rodu who is still playing for us and the technical adviser is former rep Ravuama Madigi and their experience should be good for the players.
"All in all, we are expecting a good outing for us and we hope to qualify for the semi-finals from our pool," Khan said.
Rewa's first match of the tournament will be today's last match against Ba at 7.15pm.
