Sport: Fiji dominant in opening netball win

10:29 am on 28 June 2012

Fiji have begun the defence of their Pacific Netball Series title in clinical fashion, thumping Papua New Guinea 70-29 in their opening match in Suva on Monday.

The home side started quickly, and led after each quarter.

In the earlier game Samoa beat Cook Islands 49-40, enacting some revenge for their surprise defeat to the same side at last year's tournament.

Meanwhile Vanuatu still has a way to go at international level after being humbled 61-30 by the Fiji Under 21 team.
