Revelation Sports and Rec­reation Inc netball team made a clean sweep in all grades of the NEWWORLD IGA Suva Netball Association Inter-Confederacy tournament at the National Netball Centre last night.

In the U11 Revelations defeated Burebasaga 15-7, in the U12 Rev­elations won 30-17 over Bureba­saga and in the U14 Revelations overpowered Tovata 20-13.

U14 coach Samantha Hunia who has been the coach for the Rev­elations team for 10 years was amazed at the level of competi­tion.

Hunia added she wants the com­petition to grow and have more teams coming from New Zealand.

“The girls were blown away by the elevation of the Fijian girls,” she said.

“We had to really adjust our game plan and learn very quickly about reading and adjusting to the Suva teams.

“This is not the type of game that we have in Auckland.

“Taking away what we saw to­night, our girls do not normally get pushed like this and it was well worth the trip.”

Hunia said for the Fijian play­ers to be better in the sport they will need to learn at a young age about dedication in commitment in training.

“These young Fijian players are very similar to the Maori Pacific Island girls, you cannot replace training,” Hunia said.
