Sport: Samoa and Fiji on course to meet

10:14 am on 8 July 2011

Samoa and Fiji could yet meet in the playoff for ninth spot after both countries picked up wins in their consolation playoff matches at the World Netball Championships in Singapore.

Fiji required extra time to quell a determined host nation before ultimately prevailing 57-47, while Samoa were too good for Malaysia 54-45.

Fiji will play Barbados later this evening and Wales beat Botswana to set up a clash with Samoa.
