Tailevu-Naitasiri says the intensity of the competition in the Rewa Galaxy Premier League resulted in their demotion.

Tailevu-Naitasiri played their last game in the top-level competition yesterday at the ANZ Stadium.And they lost 1-5 to Nadroga, finishing with just 1 point after 14 games.

“The competition is tough and our players could not compete at Premier level,” Tailevu-Naitasiri coach Tagi Vonolagi said.

“Our players lacked experience playing against top teams.

“We will now concentrate on the BOG tournament next month,”Vonolagi said.

Meanwhile, Nasinu, Rakiraki, Taveuni and Dreketi are the four teams vying for the Premier League spot next season.

In the Rewa Galaxy Senior League Viti Levu Zone first leg playoff yesterday at the Fiji FA Academy in Suva, Nasinu and Rakiraki drew 0-0.

Rakiraki will host the return leg this week and the winner will play the Vanua Levu Zone winner which will be decided between Tavueni and Dreketi, who drew 1-1 in the first leg.

The Viti Levu Zone winner will play the Vanua Levu Zone winner for a spot in the top division, replacing Tailevu-Naitasiri.
