England ease into quarter-finals

netball

England booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Netball World Championships with a crushing 99-16 win over Malaysia in Auckland.

They meet South Africa on Tuesday to decide who finishes top of Pool D.

"It's going to be a huge step-up," said captain Amanda Newton. "We need that before we tackle the big guns."

Scotland cannot reach the last eight after losing 60-39 to Samoa while Wales's 86-24 defeat to New Zealand leaves them needing to beat Malawi.

Defending champions New Zealand lead Pool A with four points ahead of Malawi on two, with Wales lying third on goal average.

The final pool games take place on Tuesday after which the 16 teams will be split into two groups.

Those teams ranked first and second in their pools move into the quarter-finals while those ranked third and fourth play off to decide a final placing from one to 16.
