The Samoa Under 21 netball captain Soli Ropati says it will definitely be a tough challenge playing New Zealand in their first game of the Digicel Punjas International Youth Netball Series today.
Ropati says they will try and put the best they can in this series.
Meanwhile, the Samoan coach Lee Edwards says this will be a great opportunity for the girls to play against a different caliber of players.
Edwards says this series will show the girls where they need to be and where they need to get in preparation to the World Youth Netball Championships in Botswana.
Fiji will face Australia at 6.40pm today while the New Zealand Under 21 team will play Samoa at 4pm at the Vodafone Arena.
