Di­a­monds tin­ker with lineup

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

DI­A­MONDS net­ball coach Lisa Alexan­der is set to tin­ker with her start­ing seven for the fi­nal Con­stel­la­tion Cup Test against New Zealand, with play­ers au­di­tion­ing for Com­mon­wealth Games spots.

Aus­tralia al­ready holds a 3-0 lead in the four-Test se­ries, which wraps up to­day at Syd­ney’s Qu­dos Bank Arena.

Se­lec­tors have just a hand­ful of matches left be­fore the Com­mon­wealth Games: to­day’s match then the Quad Se­ries early in the new year in Eng­land and South Africa.

Alexan­der stuck with the same Aus­tralian start­ing side for the first three Tests, although only three of them were on court by the end of Wed­nes­day night’s se­ri­esclinch­ing win.

“We are likely to make some changes, based on the fact we just need to make sure we get ath­letes out there prior to Com­mon­wealth Games se­lec­tion, and also this next Quad Se­ries, for the se­lec­tors to see,” Alexan­der said.

Aus­tralia has won seven of the eight Con­stel­la­tion Cup se­ries, but has only swept the Sil­ver Ferns once, in 2014.
