THE Wallis and Futuna women's volleyball side is anticipating an exciting clash against Fiji when the two teams meet in the Pacific Mini Games next month.
Team coach Tauota Pelenato told Times Sport, he wants to exact revenge on the Fiji side.
This was after his team lost all three games of their tour to Fiji last month.
Fiji won the first Test 25-16, 25-17, 25-14, second Test 25-17, 25-19, 27-25 and third Test 25-8, 25-17 and 25-17.
Pelenato said the three matches and the Marist volleyball tournament was a good build-up for them.
"It was a very good learning experience for us because we don't have good competition in Wallis and Futuna," he said.
"And we found out where our weaknesses were and now we can't wait to host Fiji."
He said it would be a different ball game at the Mini Games because there would be more at stake.
"The tour was a friendly outing where we needed to find out where we stand.
"The Pacific Mini Games will be different. We have worked on our mistakes.
"It is our home ground and national pride will be at stake so the girls will be motivated by playing in front of their home crowd."
However, Pelenato added all teams competing in the sport of volleyball, would be on level ground at the Mini Games.
"This is because the venue for the games was newly built and the first testing ground will be the Mini Games.
"So our first game on it will be the Mini Games too even though we are the home team."
He said the tour of Fiji was their best experience so far and they were really grateful to the Fijian community for hosting them.
"Many of our girls are school students and it was the first time they played against any international team.
"So the match against Fiji means a lot to the girls and it was our best experience until now. Now, we can't wait to play in the Mini Games, especially against Fiji."
