Johannesburg - The South African netball team thrashed Namibia 75-34 in their African Championship match in Malawi on Tuesday.

The Proteas used the match as a platform to test out combinations and pairings for the final, where they might take on Malawi.

"We are playing some beautiful netball" said head coach Elize Kotze after the game.

"The girls are adapting well and are strong minded. Colleen Ferreira was a stronghold in the tie, and it is a blessing to have Erin Burger back in the squad, who makes a huge difference on attack."

South Africa play their next match on Wednesday, where they take on Swaziland.

"We will be analysing Swaziland this afternoon," Kotze said.

"It is difficult playing African countries because we have nothing on the teams, but we know that they play direct netball.

"We are not expecting them to be stronger than Namibia."
