“I would like to state once again that if you were tested positive the Fiji police is not your career. This is not your home ground, you are treating Nasova as your criminal ground and this ground is not for criminals. It is for police officers.”

Tudravu urged the national reps who are part of the IDC to use the platform to advocate on issues that affect all Fijians.

“Comment on the issues that we face domestic violence, violence against women and children, sexual offences and drugs. You need to say that and we would like to hear that. Because you are the stars. The young people are looking up at you. So I hope that we will do that in the various districts that we are in.”

Meanwhile, the Southern Division team which have the likes of Suva reps Shahil Dave, Remueru Takiata and Filipe Baravilala, Rewa reps Waisake Navunigasau and Labasa goalkeeper Azar Alam drew nil-all with West 2.

The West 2 side had the services of Nadroga reps Paulo Buke and Nadi’s Rahul Krishna.

The Police Special Response Unit will field Suva’s Sairusi Nalaubu, Rewa’s Tevita Waranivalu.

All these players will feature for their districts team in the Vodafone Premier League on Sunday.

In this week’s VPL clash, Rewa hosts Labasa at Ratu Cakobau Park at 3pm.
