Fiji Pearls work on improving fitness

THE Fiji Pearls are working tirelessly to ensure their fitness level reaches its peak before the Pacific Netball Series (PNS) in Cook Islands early next month.

With coach Julie Hoornweg arriving today, the side is training under the guidance of assistant coach Alivina Waqa.

Hoornweg in an earlier interview with Times Sport said the fitness of the players was not up to par in the Digicel Tri-Series Netball competition.

Fiji Pearls manager RubyAnn Sorovaki said the players were working hard to ensure they were physically fit to match the giants of the region in the series.

Sorovaki said the team had left the Tri-Series win behind to focus on qualifying for the World Netball Championship (WNC).

Fiji is the defending champions of the PNS.

The top two teams from this year's PNS will qualify for the championship.
