Rawaqa, Logaivau in doubt for Labasa

KAVAIA Rawaqa and Ilisoni Logaivau are in doubt for Labasa ahead of the side's National Football League clash against Nadi this weekend.

The duo are in Suva and have not attended training, according to the team management. Labasa is hoping to end Nadi's unbeaten run in the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna sponsored-league.

"Kavaia and Ilisoni have not attended training and they are in doubt for the game," said Labasa coach Bal Sanju Reddy.

"We will have to check their fitness if they return but I don't know when they'll join the team."

Labasa has a loss from three games.

The Babasiga Lions are grateful to have the services of national rep and Papua New Guinea-based Pita Bolaitoga again at training.

Bolaitoga was supposed to rejoin his PNG Hekari United side last week.

Reddy said having the services of Bolaitoga would be a huge boost to the side.

"Nadi is a quality team, they are the in-form team of the league.

"They have played three CVC games and are unbeaten in the league, so it is not going to be an easy game for us.

"We have some players in doubt but that will not hinder us from giving Nadi a good game because we have capable players in the squad.

"To have Pita in the team for this game is a huge boost. He is an experienced player and has been playing well for the past few games."

Labasa will bank on its home crowd to lift the morale of the players.

The game kicks off at 2pm at Subrail Park on Saturday.
