The South African Netball Team

Following their 67-40 win over Uganda in the Netball World Cup, the South African netball squad have booked themselves a spot in the semifinals. The side have been given even more incentive to progress through to the finals, however, after sponsor Telkom confirmed that they will give each player R1 million should they win the tournament outright. They have also offered R500,000 to each player if they come home as runners-up in the showpiece in Liverpool. In addition to the offer made by Telkom, Spar have committed a total amount of R1 million to share between the squad should they win the World Cup. They will receive R750,000 to share should they lose in the final, while a third-place finish will leave them with R500,000 amongst the 12 players.
