NETBALL Fiji hopes to secure Test matches against South Africa at the end of the year.

Over the weekend, a national trial was conducted from which 24 players will be named to prepare for upcoming Test matches.

The Pearl Fiji netball side faces North Ireland, PNG and two other nations in the May Series which will be held at the Vodafone Arena before the Pacific Netball Series in June.

"We're in the process of getting Test series with South Africa and possibly another nation," said Fiji Netball Association vice-president Vivian Koster.

"We have the May Series to be held here in Fiji before the Pacific Netball Series in June."

Koster said they were optimistic of a positive outcome from the Commonwealth submissions.

"If the Commonwealth submissions come through and if we're able to take part, then we will take part in the end of July and August at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

"In September, we're in a process of getting a Test series with South Africa and possibly one other country in South Africa and of course in November, we're looking at having Malawi again here in Suva."

Last November, the Malawi Netball side toured and won the series at the Vodafone Arena.

Koster added: "A media release will be send out to announce the name of the 24 players."
