Fans of the ‘Delta Tigers’ got the opportunity to meet their heroes after Rewa retained the INKK Mobile Battle of the Giants title last week.

Fans/players gathered at the Morris Hedstrom carpark in Nausori yesterday to celebrate the occasion.

A diehard fan, Monish Chand, 28, was excited when he found out the players were meeting the fans.

“I did not even know they were here, I was just walking to town when I saw the tent and the players,” Chand said.

“I’ve been a fan of them ever since my dad took me to watch them play. I am happy that they won the B.O.G title for the second time.

Also happy to meet the fans was Tevita Waranivalu, who was delighted to meet the very people who cheered for him from the grandstand.

“I feel happy and excited to be here and meet these amazing people and with the supporters around us plus the families, it is a wonderful occasion,” Waranivalu said.

“The fans have been there from Day One until the final day supporting us throughout our tournaments and we are just really thankful for their support.”

Rewa coach Marika Rodu said the day was intended to get the fans and players together and it was a success.

“Today is all about trying to celebrate the victory with the fans, get the fans to come and meet the players,” he said.

“Some of the fans didn’t turn up to the ground to watch the games.

“The event today is to just give the fans the opportunity to meet the players and vice-versa.”

Meanwhile, arrangements are underway to have a celebration, dinner for the players on Saturday..

Rewa beat Ba 2-0 in the final at Ratu Cakobau Park.
