England Head Coach Anna Mayes speaks ahead of England's first Tri-Series match against Jamaica on Saturday.
England head coach Anna Mayes is relishing the opportunity of watching her players taking on two world heavyweights in the upcoming ZEO International Netball Tri-Nations Series, live on Sky Sports.
Hosts England will tackle world No.2-ranked New Zealand and World No.4-ranked Jamaica in London and coach Mayes is expecting two tough examinations.
"Traditionally Jamaica are very aerial, quite flamboyant in the way they play," she told Sky Sports.
"New Zealand play an off-marking type style so they try and have the feeder on and tempt space and then close it down. In attack they often play into space rather than point-to-point which is an Australian style of play so it's a good opportunity for us."
England wing defence or centre Serena Guthrie added: "It's an exciting opportunity not only for the more experienced players but also some of the young guns breaking through into the team from the performance centre.
"It's a really good opportunity for the country to see England netball as a whole playing against numbers two and four in the world."
