The official quarter finals draws are yet to be released by the games organizers but Loop PNG understands that PNG will play Cook Islands and Fiji will meet Samoa on Friday.

The winners of both matches will meet in the gold and silver play offs and the losers get a chance in the bronze medal challenge.

But the netball competition continues today after lunch with Vanuatu playing two matches. Vanuatu meet Tonga (1pm) and then go against Solomon Islands at 7pm at the PNG Power Dome.
