Due to the recent cancellation of the SPAR Proteas’ plans to compete against Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago as part of the Margaret Beckford Sunshine Series, the South African national side instead rearranged their trip to travel to Ireland and then Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Netball fans will have the opportunity to see South Africa, the top 5 World ranked team take the court against; the Scottish Thistles, Wales and our own NI Warriors across an action packed weekend as each team prepares for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Our NI Warriors having arrived home from a successful 3 match win in Gibraltar will play an extended training match against the Spar Proteas allowing our Head Coach, Elaine Rice the opportunity to see our athletes up against one of the World’s top nations.

“We have learned a lot about our squad over the last 4 test matches, introducing new athletes and combinations and being exposed to different styles of play after such a long break from international competition, so we are really looking forward to taking those learnings on court against a team such as South Africa’.
