Fiji netters confident ahead of World Championships

After having been taught a lesson by the New Zealand Silver Ferns, the Fiji netball side is still confident of a good outing at the World Cup next month.
The Pearls have lost 91-31 to the Silver Ferns last week.
Pearls Coach Kate Carpenter says the big loss against the Kiwis has not deterred the team in its build up.
“I think the last week has been a true week of high performance sport coming off the back of a Gold medal win in Port Moresby and then to what we felt was a disappointing performance against the Silver ferns but the thing that was really good is how we have regrouped after that match.”
Fiji takes on Wales at the World Cup on Friday week.
Meanwhile, the Fiji National Sports Commission handed over a cheque of one hundred sixty two thousand six hundred dollars to the Pearls today.
