Big play: Nadroga’s Gerad Voi, Ravneet Chand and Simione Damuni played a good game.

Star turn: Peniame Drova and Lorima Dau were the heroes for Rewa.

Comments: Rewa coach Marika Rodu said: “I am happy we won because we did not all train together. We looked a bit disorganised on the field and the players looked frustrated as well.

“Nadroga is a good young side and they really put up a fight against us.

“We really need to go back and train together and work on some of the areas that need to be tidied up.”

Nadroga coach Ramesh Sharma said: “We did not finish well and with the U23 reps in the Rewa team, it was difficult to beat them. But I’m happy my players got a chance to be exposed to his level of football.”
