The SPAR Proteas got off to a flying start in the Vitality Netball World Cup in Liverpool, beating Trinidad & Tobago.

It was a very pacey opening quarter that saw the South Africans walk away with a four-goal lead (19-15 score-line). The Norma Plummer-led team continued with their great shooting right through until the half-time break.
