ENGLAND clinched their spot in the knockout stages and maintained their 100 per cent winning record in the tournament as they defeated Trinidad and Tobago 72-46.
It was a far from vintage display from a much-changed Roses line-up, who started slowly but ended the first quarter 20-12 ahead, only for Trinidad to come within four points at 23-19 at the Bank Arena.
Rachel Dunn was withdrawn with an apparent wrist injury but Jo Harten missed only one attempt at goal in the half as England moved 40-22 ahead at the end of the second quarter.
Dunn came back on at the start of the fourth quarter, replacing Harten, and showed little sign of her wrist continuing to trouble her as she and Helen Housby kept England out of sight.
The tournament hosts will now look forward to a showdown against South Africa on Friday night for the right to finish top of the group.
