VPL title winner to be decided after final round

The Vodafone Premier League winner will now be decided after the final round of matches after Rewa managed to hold Flow Valves Suva nil-all at Ratu Cakobau Park.

The Capital City side had to win this match to claim the title but now they will have to wait for the final round.

The fast-paced thriller kept the fans on the edge of their seats throughout the match.

The Filipe Baravilala captained side kept applying the pressure onto the Delta Tigers goalmouth but good goalkeeping by goalkeeper Simione Tamanisau kept the scores to nil-all.

The hosts also created some goal scoring chances but Ben Amino guarded the posts well and did not allow any goals against him.

Head Coach Babs Khan says the result is an advantage for them.


“We’ve got one more game and as I’ve said in my earlier interview we needed a draw and a draw is a plus for us.”

Suva still leads the points table with 26 points after 13 matches followed closely by Rewa with 24 points.

Rewa head coach Marika Rodu says only time will tell who will win the league title.

“It’s been a good year. I can’t remember the last time when the national league was decided on the last game. So it will be between the game Suva-Nadi and Rewa- Lautoka.”

A win for the Whites against Nadi in the final round will ensure they walk away with the title and a draw will allow them to win the title if Rewa does not beat Lautoka in their final match with a massive eight goals.

If the Whites lose then they will hope Rewa also loses or a draw in their final match to claim the title.

Rewa, on the other hand, will need to beat Lautoka and will hope Suva lose their final match to win the title and if Suva holds Nadi then the Delta Tigers will need to win by a massive score-line of eight goals.

Ba can win the league if both Suva and Rewa lose and Ba wins against Labasa by at least eight goals.
