VETERAN Pita Rabo will spearhead favourites Suva's campaign in the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants semi-finals today.

The Capital City side will battle Rewa in the first semis at 3pm at the ANZ Stadium.

Coach Gurjit Singh said the 37-year-old Rabo had a huge respect from the players and led the team by example.

"He is an experienced player and has the respect of his team mates. There is a huge responsibility on his shoulders and I trust him to deliver this weekend," Singh said.

Former Fiji rep Rabo, who also had a stint in New Zealand, previously played for the Rewa alongside Delta Tigers coach Marika Rodu and defender Lorima Dau.

Rabo has been a key figure for the Whites in the midfield area this season and Singh commended his role in coordinating play in the group stage of the competition.

"We are looking forward to the game against Rewa.

"They will be tough and we will do our best to remain in the competition," Singh said.

"We request the fans to come out in numbers and support the team."
