South Africa got the defence of their EU Nations Cup water polo title off to a winning start in Malta on Thursday.
Captain Pierre le Roux’s men beat Wales 24-4 in their opening Pool A match.
The South Africans started their fixture with a solid defensive effort but the encouraging thing was that there’s plenty of room for improvement.
They next take on Austria on Friday afternoon and then face Ireland on Saturday.
Should they win their pool they’ll take on the winners of Pool B in Sunday’s final.
‘It was a very good team effort,’ said Le Roux. ‘We could have scored a lot more goals but that’s normal for the first game of the tournament.’
