THE Fiji Pearls are likely to move up in ranking after a successfully winning all its matches in the 2019 Singapore vs Fiji Test series in Singapore.

Fiji who are currently ranked 14 in the International Netball Federation World Ranking, completed its series victory after defeating Singapore at the OCBC Arena Hall in Singapore yesterday by 70-47.

Fiji had earlier won the first test 64-57 and second test 65-57.

Pearls coach Vicki Wilson commended her players for the victory but had also already turned her mind to their next test series against the ranking world number four side the Silver Ferns.

“Our next test series will see us face New Zealand who current number four in the world,” Wilson said.

“We know this will be another huge step in terms of standard of skills and speed of play but it is great to continually challenge ourselves to keep working hard on our conditioning and game structures.”

The Pearls will take on the Silver Ferns on the 28th of June in Takanini, New Zealand.
