After the third round of com­petition the NEWWORLD IGA Suva Netball Associa­tion officials have noticed clubs in the Super League grade have picked-up with their performance. This was confirmed yesterday SNA president Gabrielli Qoro.

Speaking to SUNsports, Qoro highlighted the level of skills de­velopment for most players have improved as selectors have started identifying potential ones to repre­sent Suva at the upcoming Interd­istrict Championship.

“I would say the number of play­ers and clubs that have joined the competition this season has in­creased,” the former star athlete said.

“Our selectors are on their toes identifying potential players. We’re two months away from the IDC and I could see the level of competition among clubs has intensified. And one interesting fact about the club competition is that more young players are vying to get a spot in the national team which is very en­couraging.

And looking at improving the performance of our Fijian Pearls is to fully commit to the develop­ment at grassroots level. Also, I must say for the two weeks there are few teams with the likes of Grasshoppers and Lomaiviti in the super league competition that have stepped up with their performance. “These teams are apparently using their development players to com­pete in the super league team, so in doing so these young players are able to get maximum exposure for themselves.”
