The Proteas clashed against Namibia in the netball Tri-Nations series in Cape Town on Tuesday, winning 59-26 to remain unbeaten in the competition.

South Africa came into this match high in confidence and they got off the mark very quickly.

They dominated the first quarter and went to win it 12 -5. As much as South Africa were putting pressure on Namibia, they were guilty in most instances of not taking their chances.

Dorette Badenhorst had made some few changes to her team giving players like Tshina Mdau, Chantelle Swart and Nonsikelelo Mazibuko a starting run. Some of the familiar faces got to start the match watching from the side lines. This was probably a strategy from the coaches to make sure that some of the players are ready and well rested for the final match against Uganda on Wednesday afternoon.

South Africa is the only side yet to lose a match in this tournament and they have already won the series already even though they still have one more game to play. Coach Badenhorst kept almost the same team playing for at least three and made some changes during the last quarter.

Namibia threw everything that they had at South Africa and made sure that they challenged the Proteas and pushed them as much as they could. South Africa held their own and did everything to maintain their lead. They continued stretching the lead with every quarter and made sure that they restricted Namibia from scoring.
