Natalie Haythornthwaite and England will tomorrow look to win a place in the Commonwealth Games netball final on the Gold Coast.
England beat New Zealand on Wednesday for the first time in Commonwealth Games history to top Pool B and go through to the last four unbeaten.
The Roses will now face the runner-up in Pool A – Jamaica – at the Coomera Indoor Sports Centre tomorrow.
Hosts Australia, Pool A winners, take on New Zealand in the other semi-final.
Natalie didn’t get off the bench against New Zealand, but in the 85-31 win over Wales on Monday, scored 13 goals from 14 attempts, and 17 assists.
In Sunday’s 55-49 win over Uganda, she scored seven from seven, with four assists, and in the 74-49 victory against Malawi on Friday, she claimed six goals from seven attempts, with 22 assists.
She also impressed in the Pool B opener against Scotland last Wednesday, making a big impression on head coach Tracey Neville as England won 74-28.
Natalie came off the bench at half-time, notching 17 assists.
Neville was clearly impressed with her contribution: “I think Haythornthwaite in our wing attack position came on really clinically and really started to push the defence.”
Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow’s semi-final, England will be in action on Sunday.
Should they win tomorrow, England will compete in the gold medal match at 4 a.m. BST on Sunday.
And if they are beaten tomorrow, they will instead face the bronze medal match at 2 a.m.
