Papua New Guinea fought back hard to beat the Cooks Islands 50-40 after being down 22-25 in the first half to get their first win at the Pacific Netball Series in Rarotonga yesterday.

Earlier Fiji, the four time defending champions were pushed all the way by a determined Samoa, but eventually held out 50 - 46.

Fiji led 29-20 at half-time but Samoa closed the gap to get within four at the final break.

Each team will play six games across six days with the top two qualifying for next year's World Cup in Sydney.
