Dunn: Impressive display
England notched up their third consecutive win at the World Netball Championships after beating Malaysia 95-22 in Singapore.
England's dominance was apparent from the outset as they went ahead 23-5 in the first quarter, with the team impressing their superiority throughout the remaining quarters of the match.
Quick movement into the circle from Rachel Dunn (GA) and Louise Brownfield (GS) saw them collectively sink 63 goals, whilst a strong defensive effort from Sonia Mkoloma (GD) and Eboni Beckford-Chambers (GK) made it impossible for the Malaysian attackers to get a hold of the game.
In another match, Wales suffered their third straight loss going down to Fiji 48-38, giving the South Pacific side their first win in the tournament.
Wales put up a spirited fight in a game that was a lot closer than the score suggests, however resilient defence and clinical attack saw the Fijians prevail.
