SI Netball Coach lauds Team’s performance


SOLOMON Islands Netball’s Coach is confident that her team has greatly improved despite suffering a heavy loss to Fiji 25:90 at the Friendship hall yesterday.

Coach, Martha Tolia commented on the performance of her team after the game.

“The performance of my girls is so good despite going down to Fiji who is ranked 18th in the world, we haven’t got any rank at all. This game will give us the rank but the team management is happy that the girls are improving a lot” she said.

Though the girls have demonstrated strength and teamwork throughout the game, they were no match for the well-coordinated Fijians.

Tolia also said that one of biggest disadvantage is that compared to the Fijian team, most of her girls lack the height.  

She also highlighted that her girls need to work harder on their passes.

“We need to improve on our passes, we mostly do high passes we should just focus on passes that matches our height so we will work on that” she said.

Solomon Islands will be taking on Norfolk later today and Tolia said she is counting on her team for better results.
