CAPTAIN courageous Simione Tamanisau dedicated the 2014 Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants win to his players.

Tamanisau who made his comeback for the Rewa side with this tournament was instrumental in the Delta Tigers' success.

However, the policeman dedicated the win to the players, coach Marika Rodu and team officials for their hard work.

"I thank the Lord because he was the source of inspiration and strength in this team. Hats off to the boys, they stuck to the game plan and played right to the final minute," Tamanisau said.

"We scored two spectacular goals and all credit to the players.

"I also thank the officials and not forgetting our hardworking coach. He was the reason we reached this far.

"He planned the strategies and the game plan to provide us this win."

Tamanisau was one of the few senior players who were part of the Rewa team.

The others include Lorima Dau and Simione Maikali.

"This win has set a good platform for the IDC and we will try to build on from here on," Tamanisau added.
