THE national netball side has identified key areas it will need to improve on before they play two Test matches with the Malawi Queens next month.
The Fiji Pearls team to face the Queens on November 2 and 4 at the Vodafone Arena in Suva was named earlier this week.
Coach Unaisi Rokoura said their main focus for the build-up was working on their transition.
"By transition I mean from attack to defence and then from defence to attack," she said.
"The game will be played at high speed and with a lot of intensity so the transitional play needs to be very efficient because we cannot afford to have any loopholes in attack and defence.
"All we demand from them (players) is their full commitment and that they remain focused."
She said Malawi would be strong in this area because of their buildup towards the two tests.
"They would have played Australia and New Zealand before they get to Fiji.
"So since Australia and New Zealand are excellent in their transition, I think Malawi would have also geared up for that.
"And they would have identified their weaknesses before they get here so we will need to be ready for that."
Rokoura said they would play the national men's side twice a week as a buildup to the Tests.
