Netters ready

THE Satelite Divas will be banking on their national reps to spearhead their campaign against the Stallions Starlets in the first round of the 2017 Digicel Punjas Netball Super League today.

The national reps in the team are Alisi Waqa, Kelera Nawai, Alisi Naqiri, Asenaca Rauluni, Ana Rusivakula, Luse Kotobalavu and Laisani Waqanisau.

Head coach Sainiana Delai said the experience of national reps would boost the team's campaign.

She said the side did not have time to train together as a team, but was optimistic of their chances.

"We haven't trained together as a team because most of the players are finding it hard to get the players," said Delana.

"This will also be the first time for our players to play together as a team this season and we are depending on our national reps to set the platform against the Stallions."

Ledua said the side expected a tough battle against the unpredictable Stallions.

She said Nadroga had some enterprising players and would be inspired by the presence of Fiji Pearls defender, Episake Kahatoka.

"We cannot afford to treat the Stallions lightly.

"They have a few good players and surely the experience of Kahatoka will bolster the team's campaign."

She said the ultimate aim was to improve their ranking after finishing fourth in last year's competition.

The game will be held at the Vodafone Arena.

Round 2, game 3, court 1 - Capital Force vs Stallion Starlets. Round 2, game 4, court 2 - Satellite Divas vs Central Swifts. Round 2, bye - Western Zeniths.
