Duo back to boost Suva team

UTILITY Waisake Navunigasau and Olympian Filipe Baravilala are back for the Suva football team for the 2017 Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants after a lapse of more than six months.

The duo had been part of the police training course which kept them away from playing football for the Capital City in the domestic football competition. Suva coach Shivam Nathan said they would work out a game plan with the players.

“We need to set up a plan for the team for the BOG tournament,” he said.

“The postponement of the match between Suva and Rewa last week on Sunday had affected our preparation and the plan which was already scheduled.”

Nathan said they cannot afford to underestimate Labasa.

“Labasa is a good team and playing them in their home ground is always tough for any team,” he added.

“Labasa will come out firing. They have been a good team this season especially in the Fiji FACT and it will be a crucial match for both the team since it will be our first match in the tournament.”

Suva plays Labasa at 7.30pm at Subrail Park in Labasa.
