Aus­tralia win Con­stel­la­tion Cup

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

In­ver­cargill: Aus­tralia have claimed netball’s Con­stel­la­tion Cup. The Di­a­monds pro­duced a dom­i­nant first quar­ter dis­play and never re­lin­quished their lead to win a phys­i­cal bat­tle 49-45 and the four match se­ries 3-1 in In­ver­cargill last night. There was no fairy­tale for Sil­ver Ferns wing de­fence Laura Lang­man’s last test match be­fore she plays in the Aus­tralian do­mes­tic com­pe­ti­tion or coach Ja­nine Southby in her first sea­son at the helm. En­ter­ing the game, New Zealand needed a 22+ goal vic­tory to win the ti­tle, which was al­ways go­ing to be a tall or­der.

It was a dif­fi­cult start for the Sil­ver Ferns
