“We have been in camp since May 7th, and I believe that we have worked very hard with the players at our disposal. We have had some technical and tactical aspects of the game put to the players and at their game. We manage to get some practice matches as well so that, we are sure. We have chosen the best 15 players (12 travelling and 3 reserves) which we believe are the best options.” —SPAR Proteas Head Coach, Norma Plummer.
