Coach selects best Pearls

CHANGES are expected in the Fiji Pearls team for the Pacific Netball Series (PNS) which will be played in Cook Islands next month.

While coach Julie Hoornweg is pleased with the performance of the players that played in the Digicel Tri-Series Plus One, she wants to name the best players available for the PNS which will be played from June 2 to 7.

Defending champions Fiji will be up against Cook Islands, Samoa and Papua New Guinea.

Hoornweg said the team was making good progress in preparation ahead of the tournament.

She said they were working on areas of concern to ensure top finish in the PNS.

Hoornweg said fitness remained their major focus.

"I don't mean general fitness, I mean match play fitness sort of netball specific type stuff," she said.

"In a week, they cannot improve their fitness. What they can do is to improve their ability to move around the netball court.

"The pattern, their passing and their throwing.

"They are improving every day, whether that's going to be enough we don't know because we don't know what the opposition will be like."

Hoornweg said they would be playing against the Fiji A side next week to experiment on areas they had been working on during training.
