Bajan ballers feel the grind
THE GEMS aren’t shining Down Under.
It’s gone from bad to worse for Barbados after the country’s netball squad suffered a humiliating 55-39 defeat to long-time rivals Trinidad and Tobago in yesterday’s World Cup encounter in Sydney, Australia.
The result has left the Gems winless in Group A following heavy 83-16 and 73-28 losses to favourites Australia and New Zealand, respectively.
And while those scorelines were widely anticipated, another double-digit defeat wasn’t on the cards, especially not against a well-known adversary ranked one spot below the ninth-rated Bajans.
But the twin-island republic made it two wins in as many games against Barbados following last year’s Commonwealth Games victory. (nwc2015.com)
