LIVERPOOL – South Africa's women's team could find it difficult at the Netball World Cup in Liverpool as they play their first group match against Trinidad and Tobago on Friday (start at 18h25).
Looking at the various groups, it seems that the Proteas will eventually need to beat either England or Jamaica to make the semifinals - that's if they make it that far in the tournament.
The Proteas' best result at the World Cup was in 1995 when they were the runners-up.
Erin Burger, a vital member of the Proteas is quietly confident that she and her teammates could surprise a few countries.
"For everyone, there is no more significant honour than playing for South Africa. Over the last four years, we might have lacked in many ways compared to what happens in Australia, New Zealand and England, but I think that makes us hungrier to succeed.
