Fiji netball says moves are under way to relocate the squad camp to Australia in the build-up to the 2007 World Championship.

President Alisi Tabete says with Fiji's current political situation they don't want the team to be affected in anyway before the champs.

With the World Netball Champioships taken away from Fiji last week, and an alternative venue yet to be confirmed, Netball Fiji officials are doing their best to ensure the team is in top condition for the tournament.

Meanwhile, national coach Vilimaina Davu has named a named a 20-strong national squad for the 2007 World Netball Championships and the Pacific Games in Apia, Samoa.

Davu says the trials went well and she was happy with the outcome, adding that she would be taking in a few more players who are keen on joining Team Fiji in the new year.
