- England 89-28 Fiji
- Housby and Cardwell excel to secure top-two finish in Pool F
England clinched their place in the Netball World Cup semi-finals with a match to spare after defeating Fiji 89-28 in a late-night game in Cape Town.
With 16 places separating the Roses from the Pearls in the world rankings, victory was all but guaranteed but the nature of it – being England’s fifth game in as many days – was less so. Mental sharpness and fatigue were as much the challenges as taking on Fiji in the country’s 10th World Cup.
