She returned to play in the Suva Netball club competition, for the love of the sport.
“It’s a passion, I love netball. Last year, I didn’t play but I came back this year just to support the girls and play as I have experience in the team with the young players.”
Natiri has been mentoring the younger players in the Tagimoucia side.
“My advice is just to train, stay fit and just the mindset. Because I’m 34-years-old, I still play so it’s just your lifestyle and keeping fit.”
Tagimoucia Flames is one of the 40 teams participating in the Suva Netball Association tournament this season.
