The Fiji netball under 21 side has been given a last minute financial boost by the interim government for their trip to New Zealand.

They've received just over three thousand US dollars.

The head Coach, Melissa Walker, says their budget was just over 21 thousand for the ten day tour, but after doing the sums again it dropped to nearly 11,000 US thousand dollars.

And a further 68,000 dollars has been donated by the government for the team that will take part at the World Youth Netball Championships in the Cook Islands in August.

Fiji is ranked 13th in the Youth World Cup.
