The final leg of the Netball Quad Series moves to Melbourne on Sunday morning where the Roses face South Africa’s Proteas with both teams looking for their first win of the series.
Both sides have lost at the hands of the world’s top two teams the Australia Diamonds and the New Zealand Silver Ferns meaning this will be a fascinating encounter.
The last time England faced South Africa was at the 2015 Netball World Cup in Sydney where our Roses were 62-46 winners.
Whatever history dictates, this will be a closely fought battle between two teams desperately wanting to get points on the board.

Sat 27th August
Australian Diamonds 68 – 43 South Africa Proteas
New Zealand Silver Ferns 65 – 39 England Roses
Wed 31st August
