The Fiji Blues women’s team suf­fered a dis­ap­point­ing 3- 0 loss to New Cale­do­nia in the 2016 Handy Fi­nance Ocea­nia Vol­ley­ball Cham­pi­onship at the Voda­fone Arena, Suva last night. The Fi­jians were made to play catchup as New Cale­do­nia spiked their way through the first set win­ning 12-25. The vis­i­tors con­tin­ued the on­slaught to dom­i­nate the re­main­ing two sets 2025 and 18-25 re­spec­tively. Fiji Blues women’s team man­ager Se­maima Lag­i­lagi said they were happy at how the play­ers per­formed de­spite the loss. “I’m quite happy with the way they played tonight be­cause most of these play­ers are new and this is their first out­ing,” she said. Lag­i­lagi pointed out the team had made a cou­ple of er­rors and they would like to work on it be­fore their next game. “We will be go­ing back and will dis­cuss about this. And work on some of the ar­eas we need to im­prove on for our next game. We are just tak­ing one game at a time and we’ll see where things go from there,” she said.

Fiji take on Kiri­bati to­day at 7pm.
