The Fiji Netball side has escaped recent ructions with a team building trip to the northern island of Bua.

Coach, Vilimaina Davu, has threatened to resign regarding the sacking of its long serving manager and team director.

the Netball Fiji Council hasn't officially reacted to the threat but its believed at next month's meeting the council will pass a no confidence motion in president, Alice Tabete, who has lost her role as team director.

Davu wants Tabete re-instated so there's the potential for tensions to escalate

Davu and her side return tomorrow with the former Silver Ferns keeper booked to fly out on Sunday to join the Force side for the resumption of New Zealand's National Bank Cup
