Inside Sport - - PUB DEBATE -

The Aus­tralian net­ball side em­barks on the Quad Se­ries, and as ex­pected, the ad­vent of the Su­per com­pe­ti­tion has made mak­ing the na­tional team cut as tough as ever. Aˆer leav­ing out the likes of Natalie Med­hurst, Paige Hadley and Su­san Pe­i(who is part of the squad for the Con­stel­la­tion Cup later in the year), Di­a­monds coach Lisa Alexan­der made a fair com­ment: “Num­bers wise this is tougher than se­lect­ing an Aus­tralian cricket team.” The Aussies play their first match in the Di­a­monds

vs Eng­land (Aug 26) in Bris­bane, pick­ing up from the 47-46 thriller the two sides played at Wem­b­ley in Fe­bru­ary. South Africa (Aug 30) is up next in Can­berra, with this se­ries wrap­ping over the ditch in In­ver­cargill ver­sus New Zealand (Sep 3).
