The Silver Ferns were quickly welcomed into the New Year displaying strong form in their clash against the Fiji Pearls at the Vodafone Arena in Suva Fiji.
With this week's Oceania Tri-Series underway, the Ferns showed swift control early into the game with a consistent and well-constructed outing against the Pearls in the series opener.
The Ferns maintained good rhythm and continued to impress, especially with Maria Tutaia making a solid return to the team following a long injury lay-off. Despite the Pearls responding with good movement on the court, it wasn’t enough to fill the gap.
After a thrilling match, the Ferns walked away with an 81-38 win over Fiji. The Silver Ferns face Samoa tonight in Suva.
