VETERAN referee Bobby Dave has placed his bets on Suva to win the Vodafone Fiji FACT title next weekend.

The tournament starts this Friday at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori and Dave said the pools are looking tough.

Suva is grouped with defending champions Nadi in Pool B along with Lautoka and Navua.

Rewa heads Pool A with Ba, Labasa and Nadroga.

Dave, who has been officiating for 25 years, said Suva would top their pool and then win the final.

"I am not saying this because my son Sahil Dave is playing for Suva," he said.

"But because as a team, they are very strong and consistent.

"Ba and Rewa from Pool A would make it to the semi-final and Labasa also stands a good chance."

The group stages of the Fiji FACT would be played this weekend and the semi-final and final would be played on June 28 and 29 respectively.

Meanwhile, he said the losses of Spain and Uruguay in the FIFA World Cup were shocking.

"But it is still too early to tell who would win the World Cup."
