Tanzania on top at Nations Cup

Although the last round of the 2012 Court Craft Plexipave Night Interdistrict competition on Wednesday night signaled the final Netball NSW competition of the year, there is still plenty of netball happening in other parts of the world.

The 2012 Nations Cup is in the midst of competition with Singapore (world ranking 18), Tanzania (19), Sri Lanka (23), Malaysia (25), Namibia (26) and Republic of Ireland (28) battling to get their hands on the cup.

The Nations Cup has been held in Singapore annually since 2006, with the 2012 edition kicking off last Sunday 2 December and will wrap up with finals this Saturday.

Past champions include Singapore (2006-2007), Papua New Guinea (2008), Northern Ireland (2009), Scotland (2010), and Fiji (2011).

Tanzania is already assured of a spot in the final after making it through the opening four days undefeated, leading Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Namibia and Singapore all with two wins, two losses and a chance of joining the world number 19 team in Saturday’s final.

The tournament takes a rest day on today before the vital final round on Friday when the team to meet Tanzania in the final will be decided.
