Barbados v South Africa



South Africa bounced back from last night's nightmare against England, and were fast out of the blocks, to lead at the first quarter break 16 goals to 4, going on to win the game a comfortable 59-20.

The Baby Proteas were hurting after last night's loss but they stuck together and pulled off an impressive defeat over Barbados. 

The starting line up seemed to work well and they found a sense of balance and rhythm with the shots dropping in. 

The half time score read 48-14 to the Proteas and and the introduction of South Africa's vice captain Rochelle Lawson at GD made a good impact, hunting down intercepts.  

They had huge confidence to sail through the game and make good use of the practice in preparation for the fifth place play off tomorrow.

Barbados looked tired and were managing several injuries from previous games. Vice captain Tyneisha Rowe told of their disappointment after the game. "We had the mindset to go and win." she said. "In the next game we will be tougher."

Barbados coach Sandra Bruce-Small was not at all happy. "I was quite disappointed because I know we can do a lot better." 

South African coach Dorette Badenhorst thought the team played well, but wants to go into fifth gear for the fifth place playoff. "We need to be at our best."
