Fijian Pearls head coach Vicki Wilson is scouting for potential players to be part of the national squad during the 2018 Digicel/ Punjas National Championship in Lautoka yesterday.

“The coaching team will pick players from the open and under- 21grades,” Wilson said.

This is in preparation for the 2021 Netball World Youth Cup which will be held at the Vodafone Arena, Suva and the 2019 Netball World Cup in Liver­pool, England. Wilson said they would be looking for certain qualities.

“It is about looking and identifying talents, and players who reads the space well, has good court-craft and speed.”

In addition, the Fijian Pearls coach said it had been a good competition so far, as they had the chances in look­ing at other district players from other parts of Fiji.

“For me it is not about looking at the areas the players lack in but talents I can take on board for international du­ties,” she said.
