However, Rokoura says this does not affect her selection process as she tries to utilize all her players before the World Cup.

“It’s part of a rebuilding process with netball Fiji and you know we’ve had to discipline a few players in the past few weeks and again its about rebuilding and building up to the World cup where not only we are looking for a player that’s in our pool but its making sure that the players that we have is a full and holistic athlete where not only skills alone but behaviors as well”

The Pearls play Botswana at 9pm.
