The England Roses Netball team secured a three-goal victory over South Africa, after facing defeat in the second game of the series. The final game of this series was held at Nottinghams Motorpoint Arena.

Fran Williams, named Vitality Player of the Match and the Series, partnered with Funmi Fadoju to make a solid defensive duo and got six gains throughout the tense match. This defensive partnership was crucial in maintaining the lead over the South African team.

Another noteworthy moment saw Norma Plummer, head coach of the South African national team, receive a guard of honour, as she said goodbye to her position at the end of the series.

This victory over South Africa highlights the end of a successful year of Netball for the England Roses. The team gained a silver medal at the 2023 Netball World Cup, which is likely their most impressive achievement since winning gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
