Fiji Pearls try new playing strategies

THE Fiji Pearls have worked on different strategies to keep its opponents guessing in the Pacific Netball Series (PNS) which starts today in Cook Islands.

The Julie Hoornweg-coached side will take on the hosts in its opening match this afternoon.

Hoornweg said they needed to introduce new strategies to overcome the Pacific teams in the World Netball Championship qualifiers tournament.

The top two teams from the PNS will qualify for the world cup to be held in Australia next year.

Fiji, which is the defending champions, is expected to face a stern test against Cook Islands, Samoa and Papua New Guinea.

"We are just looking at getting our game together. Whatever the opposite bring, we need to be physically fit and defensively oppressive and attack with dynamism that the opposition can't cope with us," Hoornweg said.

The Matila Waqanidrola-skippered side has settled well in Cook Islands and the players are looking forward to the opening game today.

Team:

Afa Rusivakula, Alesi Waqa, Debra Delana, Raijeli Daveua, Lusi Robanakadavu, Maria Lutua, Matila Waqanidrola, Nina Cirikisuva, Sera Dakuitoga, Teimumu Vukinavanua, Vaiti Waqatabu, Unaisi Rauluni
