Potgieter pride in Proteas’ fourth

Lenize Potgieter spoke of her pride in South Africa's Vitality Netball World Cup campaign after the Proteas finished the tournament in fourth position.

South Africa lost out to England in today’s bronze medal match, and although disappointed with that result, Potgieter was pleased with how her team tackled the World Cup as a whole.

She said:

“I think we’re disappointed in our performance today. The Roses brought their A game against us. But I’m really proud of my team for getting this far – we have really improved since the previous World Cup.

“I think if we played like we played against Australia (in the semi-final, where South Africa lost by two), it would have been a better game. There were great moments in the game, but we needed to be more consistent with them.

“I’m still very proud of the team – sad obviously that we didn’t medal, but we improved our ranking, so I’m very happy about that.”
