Newham & Essex Beagles netball ace Sasha Corbin believes the International Tri-Series games this week will be the ideal assessment to see where the England team are in their Commonwealth Games preparations, writes Ziad Chaudry.

The 25-year-old wing attack and centre specialist, who has a personal best of 44.86m in the javelin, will feature in all of England games, starting against the Jamaican Sunshine Girls at Wembley Arena on Saturday (6pm) before facing the might of New Zealand at the Olympic Park’s Copper Box Arena, Olympic Park on Monday (7.30pm)

Back in September Corbin and younger sister Kadeen, who has also competed for Beagles and is currently an assistant coach at Barking Abbey School Netball Academy, both helped England complete a comfortable 3-0 whitewash series victory over South Africa.

Corbin, whose cousin and fellow Beagle Asha Philip is current British women’s 100m champion and a 2013 world championship semi-finalist, is looking forward to the action and said: “We are ready to be tested to see where we are at.

“This series will be a tough challenge for us, but we are confident in our tactics. Our focus is about executing them well under pressure for the full 60 minutes against number two and four in the world.

“We always go out there to win, so we’ll be putting our best foot forward. We want to progress and get stronger with every game.”

The ZEO International Tri-Series begins on Friday as New Zealand face Jamaica at Wembley Arena (7.30pm).

England meet Jamaica the following day, then take on New Zealand at the Copper Box on Monday (7.30pm), before meeting the Jamaicans again on Tuesday in an additional international.

Tickets are available online at www.englandnetball.co.uk/england/Unite_In_Red or on the day at the respective venues.

The matches will also be shown live on Sky Sports 3.
