Fiji A dominates

THE shadow Fiji netball team continued to dominate the Tongan national team with another impressive 43-32 victory at the Vodafone Arena yesterday.

The side playing as Fiji A pulled a 42-36 victory in their opening clash on Tuesday afternoon and followed up with another victory heading into the final clash tomorrow. Laced with former national reps such as Taufa Taga and Asilika Sevutia, the Fiji A side, coached by former national rep Filo Korovulavula, showed they were also putting their hands up for selection into the Fiji Pearl national team.

Team manager Sera Vakaloloma said her troop played outstandingly during the past two games.

"It's good to come out with victories and I believe the girls are putting their hands up for selection in the national team but that will be decided by our Fiji coach (Julie Hoornweg) alone," she said.

"Most of the experienced players who have already played for the national team performed really well."

She said players were advised to give their best shot as the selection door was still open.

"I told the girls that this is their opportunity to give their best because our Fiji coach will be watching. They need to show their talent and start pushing for a spot in the national team."

Vakaloloma added that changes might be expected in the final game tomorrow.
