Despite a narrow point margin, the champions displayed determination to secure their initial victory.
Coach Ro Varanisese Logavatu acknowledged the difficulty of returning to the games after missing the previous one, emphasizing the challenge of unfamiliar opponents’ playing styles.
Logavatu highlighted the need for improvement in second-line defense, serving, and passes.
