Sport: Fiji Pearls to play against ANZ netball franchises

The Fiji Pearls will travel to New Zealand and Australia next year for matches against ANZ Championship teams, as part of their build-up to the Netball World Cup in August.

Fiji Netball President Wainikiti Bogidrau confirmed this week Malawi will return to Fiji in November for a two-test series, while a Pacific Series will also be held in the middle of next year.

Bogidrau says matches against ANZ franchises will be another valuable addition to their World Cup preparations.

"We have another four international test matches before the World Netball Cup next year and we have training tours to play against ANZ franchise teams - in New Zealand it's been confirmed and we're just waiting for Australia to come back to us on that. That will be around February."
