Current Battle of the Giants champions and Vodafone Premier League leaders, Rewa almost reached Inter-District Championship’s final this weekend as the team coached by Marika Rodu lost to Labasa in the semi-finals by 1-0.
The Delta Tigers did not reach the final of the tournament, but the quality of Rewa’s player Tevita Waranaivalu deserves to be recognized – and it was. The 25-year-old attacking midfielder received the Golden Ball Award – an award given to the best player of the tournament.

Waranaivalu did not score in the Inter-District Championship, but his presence was very important to lead Rewa to the knockout stage. His intelligence and skills were a major differentiator for the Delta Tigers in the group stage. This award was not very well accepted by local fans who think that Ratu Anare and Ilisoni Lolaivalu from Labasa deserved more than him.
Oceania Football Center congratulate Waranaivalu for this accomplishment. You can check more information about 2020 Inter-District Championship by clicking here.
