Stallion Starlets work on fitness

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

THE Stallion Starlets are working on their fitness level after losing their two games against the Capital Force and the Satelite Divas in the opening round of the Digicel Punjas Netball Super League over the weekend.

Head coach Waisale Ratunideuba said lack of fitness was the contributing factor to their downfall last week.

He said the players trained at the famous Sigatoka Sand Dunes on Monday in their effort to lift their fitness level.

"We started the two games well but we fell apart in the last quarter because of lack of fitness," said Ratunideuba.

"The girls blended well in our last games despite the lack of game together as a team but we really need to improve on our fitness level.

"We will be focusing on running this week that started with our sand dunes training on Monday."

Ratunideuba said the team had the potential to upset some top teams.

"We have a good bunch of talented players and I have faith in this team."

"We were satisfied with our performance against Suva and Nasinu last week and we are confident of a better outing this weekend."

The Stallion Starlets side will be bolstered with the presence of Fiji Pearls top defender Episake Kahatoak in this weekend's round of games.

"The return of Kahatoka will boost and inspire our young players to lift their workrate and surely we will come back with better performance this weekend," she added.
