WITH emotional feeling, Moce veteran cricket player Cakacaka Sau, 42, vowed they'll be back again to defend the LICI Crompton Cup next year.
Sau promised supporters who farewelled the team at the Suva Narain Jetty they will back next year ù but much better.
"It was sheer dedication and discipline that lifted the team's performance to grab victory from Suva, the defending champion," Sau said.
Accompanying them back home are the neighbouring island teams of Oneata, Namuka-i-Lau, Komo, Lakeba to name a few.
As the inter-island vessel MV Lady Sanday set sail against a strong midday southerly wind encountering the seas towards southern Lau, Sau confirmed the hard-earned victory was made possible through a lot of sacrifices.
The boat later returned to Suva after strong winds and rough seas on Friday night.
