SPRING-HEELED netball star Unaisi Rauluni continues to make her name in the local netball fraternity after being named by Fiji Pearls head coach Kate Carpenter as the Digicel Punjas Netball Championship best player in Lautka over the weekend.

The 19-year-old sharp shooter was instrumental for the Capital City netters in their 57-48 final win over arch rival Nasinu to successfully defend the national title.

Rauluni's all-round performance caught the attention of the newly selected national coach ahead of other top shooters in the competition.

The daughter of the late national 7s skipper Vesi Rauluni was also named by Carpenter in her 12-member tournament team.

"Una was the best in the A grade competition," said Carpenter.

"Her movement, accuracy and ability to shoot long range separated her from other shooters.

"She had a very strong role in the outcome of the game.

"She is technically accurate and has what we are looking for in shooting department."

Rauluni survived a torrid battle against Nasinu defenders Teimumu Moce and Luse Kotobalavu to score an average of 30 goals in the game.

The talented player was ably supported by another standout performer Nina Cirikisuva during the tournament.

And with the guidance and coaching of Carpenter, Rauluni is certain to become the next big thing in Fiji Netball.
