England ended the first preliminary stage of the Netball World Cup with a 90-24 win over Samoa to finish top of Group D.

The Roses were in charge throughout, leading by 32 goals at half-time.

At 14th in the rankings, Samoa are 11 places below England and although they showed quality in the third quarter of the match, they soon faded again.

England now progress to the second stage as one of six teams in Group G, which starts on Monday.

The top two from that group will progress to the semi-final stage.
