|The Silver Ferns finished runners-up in the Netball Quad Series after completing a well-crafted 70-39 win over the SPAR Proteas in London on Sunday.
Building on a solid platform throughout the match, the Silver Ferns completed an impressive performance by getting all their players on court and ending with a decisive and effective outing.
Goal shoot Te Paea Selby-Ricket was the only change to the Silver Ferns starting line-up from the previous encounter against England for the match-up against an ever-improving South Africa.
Experienced Silver Ferns vice-captain Maria Tutaia picked up from where she left off against England with an impressive opening, making her presence felt through strong movement and ease of conversion from long range in the shooting circle.
SPAR Proteas Norma Plummer went on to say “we certainly in the game today and its very much needed to be physically conditioned to the level of the opposition as they have both height and strength which are mainly the components we lack in at this level, we very much need our girls to take part in a strength and conditioning programme to better compete looking forward”.
