South Africa will face world number one Australia in their Netball World Cup semi-final after suffering their first defeat of the tournament with a 58-47 loss to England on Thursday night.
On the one side, South Africa looked rattled, while the Roses shooters at the opposite end were the picture of composure and accuracy in the first half.
The England attack ran circles around the Proteas defenders, who would cause havoc on any other day.
South Africa could not get a foothold, suffering an early setback when captain and centre Bongi Msomi left the court early in the first quarter with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
A clinical England side found easy access into the circle, with Joanne Harten and Helen Housby combining well with accurate shooting.
