The Fiji Times reports the University of the South Pacific High Performance Unit officer, Tony Lofatanoa, has been assisting the Fiji netball team in its build up to November's world netball champs.

Fiji Coach Villiamu Davu is in New Zealand involved in the National Bank cup which has begun its last season.

Last evening Davu made a successful debut for the Force in beating last year's beaten finalist, the Sting, 51-46 in Invercargill.

Davu had played seven seasons for the Canterbury Flames.

Fiji National squad members, Susan Tagicakibau, and Sala Hide will also feature in the competition.

Tagicakibau will play for the Diamonds while Hide teams up with the Shakers.
