The Vitality Roses showed their fitness levels throughout the contest

England’s Vitality Roses opened their three-Test series against Jamaica with a 55-45 victory at the Copper Box Arena.

Jess Thirlby’s outfit produced a storming third quarter to take control of the contest and then put their foot on the gas during the fourth quarter.

After trailing 26-25 at the break, the introduction of Eleanor Cardwell changed England’s dynamic in attack, while the work of Layla Guscoth, Beth Cobden and the returning Eboni Usoro-Brown paid dividends in defence.

The second and third Tests will take place on December 4 and 5 at the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham and will be shown live on Sky Sports.
