Tinai says the players showed full commitment and determinations in the final.
“I’m so proud of these girls because it took us nearly three months to get this team together and I would like to thank the girls for their efforts. We have a few young players and some old players so it’s a good mixture and was a good outing with England.”
The Fijiana side defeated China in the semi-final by 12-nil.
