SI proved to be a force

The Solomon Islands netball team, as humbled as they may seem, were a real force to be reckoned with at the VAN2017 Pacific Mini Games.

It has taken the Pacific Island nation more than three decades to win a single medal at an international event.

The VAN2017 Pacific Games was special as Solomon Islands defeated hosts Vanuatu in the bronze medal play off finishing third in the netball race.
