Military Coup In Fiji. Netball World Rocked.

In November 2003 the hosting rights for the 2007 World Netball Championships were awarded to the Island of Fiji.

Unfortunately in December last year there was a Military Coup staged by Commander Vorege Bainamarama (which sounds way to much like Bananarama to me) and the Government was unseated.

Why this should affect the sixteen countries set to compete in the World Netball Champs in July, I have no idea, but the INFA have pulled Fiji's hosting rights. All I know is that if someone gave Banannarama a load of guns, I wouldn't want to go near them either...

The tournament will now take place in New Zealand this July.
