10:32 am on 22 August 2011

A Cook Islands selection side were given plenty to mull over before the start of the Pacific Games football competition after being thrashed 9-1 by New Zealand club side Waitakere United in Rarotonga on Sunday.

Also at the weekend New Caledonia completed their preparations with a 1-1 draw against A-League club Gold Coast United.

It followed a scoreless draw between the same sides on Wednesday.
