South Africa vs New Zealand Tips & Live Stream

New Zealand proved far too good for Wales in their last outing as they brushed their opponents aside in an 83-34 win. 

Head to Head

New Zealand won their last clash back in January in a 61-41 win. This came on the back of a stunning victory for South Africa at the backend of 2022 as they edged to a 38-37 win. In their last 10, New Zealand have eight wins, South Africa have won once and there has been a single draw. 

South Africa Form 

South Africa have been pretty good at the 2023 Netball World Cup, but they will feel they have to win this game to truly keep the pressure on the sides currently above them. 

Two comfortable wins over Wales and Sri Lanka was followed by a 67-49 defeat to Jamaica. The loss was not allowed to snowball as South Africa hammered Trinidad & Tobago 69-28 to snare their third win in four games. 

With both New Zealand and Jamaica two points above them in the group, South Africa know that a win here could be one that puts them in the top two. 

New Zealand Form 

New Zealand currently hold all the cards in the group with a perfect record at the Netball World Cup and the major boost that being the world champion brings. 

Wins over Trinidad & Tobago, Uganda, Singapore and Wales have all been regulation victories, while their 83-34 win over Wales sees New Zealand coming into this one in fine form. 

A win in this match would see the world champions move four points clear of the chasing pack in the group as they look to ensure they are part of the semi-final party at the World Cup.

I am backing this one to be a tight match in which New Zealand come out on top. The handicap is 13.5 points, but I am not backing the world champions to cover it, with South Africa likely to give them a real test.
