The Cook Islands success at the recent World Netball Championships has set the platform for the 2009 world youth championships in Rarotonga.

The Cook Islands went into the World's ranked 11th and finished in 7th place.

The Oceania President Tina Browne says that result was stunning and is good for the world youth championships.

"I couldn't emphasise how much that positioning has done for netball, the country's buzzing, everybody's now looking forward to 2009, we've got a tri series with Samoa and Fiji in September next year, and now being placed in that position it can only do us so much good."
