Solomon Islander Abhram Iniga and Papua New Guinean Wira Wama jetted into the country last night.
The duo are here to bolster the Rewa and Labasa teams respectively for the 76th Courts Inter-District Championship which will be held in Ba next week.
Both appeared in their respective district colours in the Battle of the Giants tournament that was held in Lautoka in July.
After the BOG both returned to their home island nations and waiting for the call for the biggest tournament in Fiji soccer.
“I feel happy to be back for Rewa and look forward for this IDC,” said Iniga.
“I went back to the Solomon (Islands) after the BOG and played for the national team for the world cup qualifier. I am in fit spot now and just can’t wait to join the team in camp,” the 34 year old forward said.
Teammate and sensational striker James Kaka is expected to jet into the country tomorrow after he missed the flight yesterday to rejuvenate the defending champions. Labasa appeared in six grand finals but won only three titles since 1948. The Babasiga Lions first tasted victory of the Lloyds Farebrother trophy in 1992, 1994 and 2011.
The former Hekari United player Wira Wama is excited to feature for his second biggest tournament in Fiji.
“I feel really happy and excited to be back, I had a great experience during the BOG and looking forward to play in this biggest tournament in Fiji,” said 22 year old Wama.
“Since after the BOG I was not released so I did not play back home so I just kept on training but I played some games during the Independence day back home.
Team mate and fellow country man Kema Jack is likely to miss out in this edition of the IDC.
Rewa FC boasts to have won nine titles since winning the inaugural IDC in 1938 and repeats the feat in 1939, 1943, 1944, 1947, 1955, 1972, 2001 and 2010..
