Neivua, Leawere in

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, June 25, 2014

FORMER Flying Fijians wingers Isoa Neivua and Sekove Leawere have been named in the Navosa rugby league team to face their Nadroga counterparts next month.

The performance of these former Nadroga and national flyers in the FNRL Navosa Zone weekly have raised eyebrows enabling them to secure their spot for the much anticipated battle.

Leawere has been instrumental for his Vatubalavu-based Tuwalu Warriors while Neivua is leading a bunch of tough and talented Nukuilau Raiders during the Vodafone Cup premier competition.

Another notable inclusion to the side is Yamacia playmaker Luke Navuwai who has been the playmaker for the unbeaten Keiyasi Cowboys.

FNRL development officer Suliasi Cakaunitabua said the inclusion of Neivua and Leawere in the Navosa team would boost the morale of the highlanders against the Nadroga side in their mission to win the first ever rugby league contest.

"To have the calibre of Neivua and Leawere will be a huge boost to the development of the sport in the province," he said.

"These two players have made their names in rugby union and they have a lot to offer in rugby league.

"They have been outstanding in the last few games and they are expected to feature strongly in the upcoming battle against Nadroga."

He said Nadroga had also included some prominent rugby players in their team.

Cakaunitabua said both Nadroga and Navosa zones had eight clubs each.

The much anticipated clash will be held on July 12.
