Fiji Women’s Captain Astral Lockington says they are aiming for a better performance after winning goal in the World League tournament in Vanuatu.

“We’re looking to this tournament to develop our players even better and to prepare them for international tournaments because the exposure is what’s gonna get them ready.”
