Roses bounce back from injury setback to record 3rd win

  • +1

England matched the joint-highest score of the competition so far as they swept Samoa aside to complete their Group D campaign with three wins from three at the Vitality Netball World Cup.

The 90-24 victory came after what coach Tracey Neville admitted had been an ‘emotional’ evening after Layla Guscoth was ruled out of the remainder of the tournament with a ruptured Achilles, sustained in yesterday’s win over Scotland.

The Roses now progress to the next phase of the competition with a 100% record, as do New Zealand, who were equally as dominant as they beat Singapore 89-21 today.

Uganda won the battle with Scotland to finish second in Group D, beating the Thistles 52-43 in what is the tightest winning margin of the competition so far.
