Labasa barber to provide hair cut if Babasiga Lions win B.O.G

A barber in Labasa has vowed to give free haircuts if Labasa wins the 2017 INKK Battle of the Giant tournament which starts at Subrail Park today.

Prakash’s Barber shop owner Thakor Bhai Maisuira is one the oldest and proudest supporters of the Lunch Box Labasa team.

He shared that it has been 20 years since Labasa’s last won on their home ground and fans are looking forward to a repeat in 2017.

Running the oldest barber shop in Labasa, Prakash has confirmed that he will give free hair cut to the entire team for a year if they bring home the B.O.G title.

“I will provide free hair cut for Labasa players if they win the title,”Maisuira said.

“Labasa won the Inter District Competition (IDC) from 1992, 1997, 1999 and 2015, National League in 1991 and also the Champion vs Champion in 1993 and 2008.

“But Labasa last won the B.O.G was in 1997 at Subrail Park where

Taniela Tuilevuka scored in the 1-0 win over Nadi and Jope Lomu was the captain.

“But it has been 20 years now and this is the right time for the Babasiga Lions to roar back to life.”
