12:15 pm on 21 January 2015

The Silver Ferns continued to show no mercy against their Pacific neighbours, thrashing Samoa 89-23 in Tuesday's Oceania Series clash in Suva.

Samoa kept in touch in the early stages before New Zealand exerted their dominance to lead by ten goals at quarter time, 24 at the half and 43 goals going into the final fifteen minutes.

Fiji coach Kate Carpenter was an interested observer in the crowd with the Pearls and Samoa to square off on Wednesday night.
