THE University of the South Pacific Reefs netball side thrashed the Fiji Netball A team 74-18 in a friendly match on Wednesday night.

USP Reefs proved too strong for the shadow national side which had the services of Lusi Robanakadavu, Taufa Taga, Savaira Sorovaki, Anameli Navuki, Jeloma Whippy, Va Rauluni and a few Fiji U21 reps.

Reefs won each quarter 15-5, 35-11, 55-16 and 74-18 respectively.

USP Islanders Netball Club (USPINC) coach Gabrieli Qoro said the match was a warm-up for both sides.

"The purpose of this match was to, first, support our Fiji Netball A Team in their preparations for the Tri Series to be held next month here in Fiji," he said.

"Secondly, to showcase and promote netball here at USP among the students, lecturers, senior staff and community.

"Finally, provide the much-needed game time for the National Netball A team and also to finalise our preparations for our USP netball teams as we prepare for the Suva Netball Association opening knockout which starts this Saturday."

Qoro said Netball Fiji had a positive response towards the match between the two sides.

"Netball Fiji greatly supported the initiative and thanked USPINC for the idea in supporting the national netball team's preparations for the Tri Series.

"Our next series will be this afternoon which will feature the national A team against our USP Waives team."
