“Coach Marika Rody is giving his all in preparing the players for the me.

“Our five players in the national team will be back today (yesterday) and this will strengthen the squad,” he added.

Rewa is in Pool B, which is dubbed the ‘pool of death’, they take on Laba­sa along with Western giants Lautoka and Ba.
