England won their final game of the Netball Quad Series 57-44 against South Africa as Jade Clarke became the Roses' most capped netballer of all time.

Clarke won her 129th cap as England put in a dominant shooting display in Melbourne against the lowest ranked side in the four-team competition.

The 32-year-old is a two-time Commonwealth Games bronze medallist.

England lost their first two games to co-hosts New Zealand and Australia, as the latter won the Quad Series title.

Australia beat New Zealand 60-55 in Sunday's decider in Melbourne to win the inaugural series.
