Silver Ferns crush South Africa

3:39 pm on 10 October 2010

The New Zealand netball team has crushed South Africa 70-29 at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi to secure their place on top of pool B and confirm the Silver Ferns will avoid Australia in the semi-finals.

The Ferns completely outclassed their South African opponents at both ends of the court and will be pleased they maintained their momentum after their crucial win over England.

However an injury to star defender Leana de Bruin will be of some concern for coach Ruth Aitken as the business end of the tournament draws near.
