We are thrilled to bring you this update from the Gold Coast, Australia where our team have started strongly in the 2018 ISNC.
The girls have been together since Thursday last week when they met in Auckland for Integration Camp and flew to Australia early Saturday morning. Training that afternoon to ensure the team were acclimatised to the air and humidity was essential and a pre-tournament game against our whanaunga living in Australia (Queensland Maori Netball) gave the team great prep ahead of the week.
The team trained again on Sunday morning to put the final touches to their structures and game play then headed off to Opening Ceremony at Dreamworld.
Today - day three will be the most challenging yet with three games against three of the top teams in the competition at this stage, a draw that hasn't fallen our way but head coach Jess Huia is confident the girls are ready to take it up a notch.
