FORMER Ba marksman Ronald Lawrence will lead Tavua's charge during the National Football League opening round match against Rewa at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka this afternoon.

Lawrence joined Tavua late last season and featured in the Courts Inter District Championship in Ba.

The side will also include Savenaca Nasara and Sanjay Dutt.

Tavua coach Saroj Kumar said they had a hasty preparation because of the recent administrative crisis.

He said majority of the players who were in last year's squad turned up for training this week.

Kumar said they would face a tough time against the Delta Tigers.

"We had very short preparation time," Kumar said.

"This is because no one knew where Tavua soccer was heading. Now we have Ummat Mohammed as our president so things are slowly getting back to normal.

"As for the match against Rewa, we can only hope for the best. The players know that they will have to dig deep. We are calling on the Tavua fans in Sigatoka to come out in numbers and boost the morale of the players."

Tavua finished at the bottom of the NFL points table last year.

The Tavua versus Rewa fixture will kick-off at 1pm.
