The Pepes finished last,  managing only one victory over Tonga.Maliaki said the report would provide feedback on areas in the Pepes team that needed improvement. She said this would help them prepare well for the Pacific Netball Series in Cook Islands next month.Through the Pacific Netball Series, the Pepes will have a shot to qualify for World Cup next year in Australia.last_img read more
