England Netball: Rose defeats Jamaica 66-47 to win the series

England defends Commonwealth Games title in Birmingham next year

England defeated Jamaica 66-47 and placed a display configured to conclude the victory in the three-game series.

Rose took control early in the second game of the series and cruised to the 35-19 half-time break at Nottingham’s Utilita Arena.

Jamaica was competitive in the second half, but couldn’t nail the host.

England beat Jamaica 55-45 last week in the first match of a three-part series in London.

England Head Coach Jess Thirlby said:

“The last time I won the test series with Jamaica was in 2013, so it has a little more history.”

The Vitality Roses Reunited Series will take place after a previously planned contest with Jamaica has been postponed to January due to a coronavirus pandemic and a travel ban between the two countries.

The final will take place on Sunday in Nottingham.
