REWA is hoping to get its players fitness back to peak with just few days remaining before the start of the National Football League competition.
The Delta Tigers started its training last week with a poor turnout at the Saraswati Primary School grounds.
Rewa Football Association president Nigel Khan attributed the poor turnout to the ongoing festive season.
“We had four to six players during training,” said Khan.
“The players were mainly from last year and new players would be gradually drafted in the team as the season continues with the commencement of our local league.”
Khan said Rewa’s first game was against Tavua and it was just a matter of the senior players getting their fitness level up to par after the long layoff and festivities.
He said coach Marika Rodu had plans to counter the unpredictable Gold Miners.
“Sometimes they (Tavua) perform poorly and sometimes they perform above expectations,” he said.
“On the whole, no team is bad and I believe it is just how you prepare yourselves that counts in the end.”
