The Greens after being criticised for a laboured display in the last two matches produced a lively and attacking performance.

They matched the (2012-2015) Masters League champions in all facets of the game as they twice came from behind to inflict harm after Partrick Krishna and Renald Lakhan pounced on earlier opportunities in the first half.

Nadi redeemed itself in the second half with goals to Mohammed Faizal followed by the proverbial Ďgiftí† after a Navua defensive gaffe.

Jan Aliís deep launch in the Navua six-yard box awkwardly deflected off one of his teammates for the equalizer.

Nadi has though dropped 5 valuable points with the draw, their† 4-2 loss to Samabula in the season opener signifies their 2016 title run is but all over.

The draw in equation sets up a battle royal fixture for Navua against Ivor Evans unbeaten Rewa and that one fixture would most likely determine the yearís champion.

Nadiís new-find midfield exponent Iyer Arun played the man of the match game, he made seasoned campaigners look pretty ordinary on the day.
