Jamaica captain Jhaniele Fowler said all is not lost for the current crop of players, despite back-to-back losses that have virtually killed chances of a podium finish at the 2019 Netball World Cup.
Jamaica, ranked second in the world entering the tournament, have not been at their convincing best.
They have fallen to defeats to fifth-ranked South Africa and 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallists England, who are rated third in the world. Jamaica’s victories so far have come against lightweights Fiji and Trinidad and Tobago.
“We just have to stay together as one; we’ll be fine,” the superstar goal shooter told journalists during the mixed zone yesterday, shortly after the 48-56 loss to England inside M&S Bank Arena.
“It’s not a setback for our programme. We’ve been third, fourth; we’ve fought back and we’re always getting up there.
“The expectations were great and we have great talent in our team, but talented teams also finish last sometimes so I guess we just have to fight hard to come again.
“We finish off whatever games we have left and regroup and see how best we can continue to keep our flag flying,” Fowler reiterated.
