Defending champs Titikaveka Pearls remain unbeaten in the Rarotonga Netball Club competition.

The Margaret Matenga-coached side defeated Takuvaine 59-38 in game one of round two on Saturday last week to remain the firm favourites for the premier title.

In the other premier match, last year’s runner-up Avatiu overcame Arorangi 57-40 to remain close behind Titikaveka on the points table.

The two teams – Titikaveka and Avatiu – will meet this Saturday in the much-anticipated top of the table clash. Titikaveka survived 53-50 in their last meeting.
