Fiji Football Association's Board of Control has stripped six National League points from Labasa after the Babasiga Lions were found guilty of fielding unregistered players in their clashes against Suva and Ba.

Suva filed a protest against Manasa Levaci claiming the son of current coach Epeli Levaci claiming her was registered with a Suva club and did not obtain his clearance before representing the northerners while Ba protested against Nemani Kanacagi who they claimed was a registered player with Race Course club and was not properly cleared.

Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel delivered the full ruling this afternoon.

“Suva’s protest against Labasa for fielding Manasa Levaci Junior who was not cleared by has be allowed," he said.

"He (Levaci) had double registrations and the player has been fined $250 and suspended for three months."

"For the Ba- Labasa case Nemani Kanacagi was registered with Ba’s Race Course Club and also registered with Savusavu and then his third registration was with Labasa”, Patel said.

"His registration with Labasa was slightly with different names and different date of birth which violated registration rules therefore Ba's protest has been allowed as well."

"The player has been imposed with a fine of $250 and has been suspended for three months."

"The Rewa/Tavua protest decision will be made in due course after Fiji FA will receive more evidence from both parties."

“Rewa’s protest against Tavua for playing Maika Nasema who played under different name was deferred for player identification. Tavua will have to produce the player for identification. Failure to present the player will result in suspension of the player and matter being reported to police.”

Tailevu Naitasiri’s protest against Nasinu's Navinesh Akash, Tevita Roko and Sesoni Cavu will be made after the verification of records.

Tailevu Naitasiri also has another protest against Lami, the decision of which will be made after the verification and player identification.

Lami’s protest against Tailevu North has been allowed as the said player Viliame Ratukadreu was not properly registered by Tailevu North and has been fined $200.

Meanwhile, Patel said Tavua’s goalie Josaia Ratu's release to Tailevu Naitasiri was approved by FFA.

“Tavua had a agreement claiming the player was paid $10,000 on signing the contract, however the player denied receiving the $10,000 but only $100 which was a breach."

"Sameula Nabenia whose case is under investigation will also have to appear before the BOC to explain on the forgery of the signature on his release application from Tavua to Tailevu Naitasiri and if he will be found guilty then he will be suspended," Patel added.
