"We noted down the aspects we need to work on during the Three Nations tournament and we will ensure that the players show a huge improvement in the national coaching camp," John said.

"Most of these players have been playing together for some time and know each other very well. The women's team tasted success down under in the Three Nations tournament last December and will be hungry for more," he added.
