The team is likely to be named Tuesday.
The players have been hard at work since February 19 in Cape Town as the group builds towards the big World League Round event from March 7 to 15 in the Mother City. Players have arrived in dribs and drabs over the last fortnight once their overseas club commitments (a select few) or for the most part, work and university commitments, were completed for the time being.
It was an improvement from Sunday’s match but these are training matches and sides don’t show you everything.
The Chinese didn’t bring much positive to the game, they were defensive in their outlook and that allowed SA to stamp their authority on the match.
Who scored the goals in training games is of little interest to the management staff as they focus on the manner in which the players combine, rather than final outcomes.
The majority amateur SA players are very much out-of-season and this training camp was vitally important in getting the squad as game-ready as possible. Regular SA captain Austin Smith will be the last to arrive when he joins the camp from Europe on Tuesday.
