August 11, 2015 6:37 pm
The Fiji Pearls players have taken it upon themselves to improve in every match from now on at the Netball World Championships underway in Australia.
Fiji was beaten by Wales and upset by Uganda in its pool matches, while the side only managed a win against Zambia.
The team got its second win of the tournament yesterday, beating Sri Lanka 77-31in the tier two of the competition.
There has been an outcry from fans on the performance of the team, and national rep, Alesi Waqa, says it’s up to the team to restore faith.
“After our game on Saturday we just went back and sat down and what we decided is that we need to forget what has happened and pick up ourselves and move on. So that’s what we did today and we worked as a unit and everything just fell into place.”
Fiji takes on Barbados at 2.20pm today.
