WITH the Battle of the Bati set to take place tonight, calls have been made for fair selection of the Vodafone Fiji Bati team for the Rugby League World Cup.
Vodafone Cup winners Sabeto Roosters is disappointed with the selection of the Fiji Residents team and has questioned the selection criteria of the national team.
Team official Livai Driu said only one of its members was part of the Fiji Residents team despite the side winning the major domestic competition this year.
"Our players have been consistent throughout this season and that was evident in the Vodafone Cup competition.
"The selection rationale is not fair and there is no justification in the selection of this team."
Fiji National Rugby League general manager Tomi Finau said Sabeto Roosters should have written their grievances to them rather than criticising the selection in the media.
The Battle of the Bati clash between Fiji Residents and Overseas Fijians will be held tonight at 7pm at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
