The International Netball Federation (INF) has released its world rankings, with the Samsung Diamonds remaining in top spot.
The rankings reflect the recent international action from the Diamonds’ Constellation Cup win over New Zealand, England vs Malawi test series and the Netball Europe Open which were all played between the 13th September and 29th November 2017.
New Zealand holds second position while a successful Netball Europe Open and series against Malawi (6th), cements England’s third spot.
Australia are set to face Jamaica (4th), South Africa (5th), Northern Ireland (8th), Barbados (10th) and Fiji (12th) in the preliminary rounds of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April.
