Hoornweg: More work

DESPITE the Digicel Tri-Series Plus One Netball competition win last week, Fiji Pearls coach Julie Hoornweg says there are still areas to improve on.

Fiji defeated Papua New Guinea 67-41 in the opening match of the series before beating Northern Ireland 60-59 and 60-46 in the final two games.

The team now shifts its focus on retaining the Pacific Netball Series title in Cook Islands early next month.

Hoornweg said the players would undergo a series of intensive training sessions this week to improve on their fitness.

She added they lacked the fitness that was required in the regional event.

"We still throw ball away where we shouldn't do.

"There is lot of little things we didn't do well but we grow every game," the veteran Australian mentor said.

"They will be training hard to improve on fitness level because it's not good enough for the next level of international competition."
