Stephanie Williams, who took to the court at Wing Defence and Goal Defence had a fantastic game, working in the goal circle with captain Sara Hale she did the most damage, restricting the opportunities that the Fijian shooters sought out. Down the other end of the court it was once again Rebecca James at Goal Attack who directed play, making intelligent, quick decisions with her passing and looking straight into Goal Shoot Cara Moseley.

COURT 1, 15th/16th PLAY-OFF

Singapore have defeated neighbouring country Malayisa, 47 to 36 in the battle for 15th and 16th place this morning.

Singapore, having had a numerous amount of close encounters throughout the week were determined to stay on song from the first whistle to the last, and that’s what they did, in convincing style. Wing Attack Asha Tett injured her foot in the 2nd quarter, leaving Singapore without two of their key players on court (Charlene Porima was injured earlier in the week), but this did not hinder the resolute girls in red as they played with pride and skill throughout.
