Australia retains Constellation Cup

Monday, 02 November 2015

Australia has retained the Constellation Cup by the skin of its teeth, sealing the series on aggregate goals despite a 47-58 loss to New Zealand in Perth on Friday.

The Silver Ferns dominated the contest and led by 14 late in the contest but the Diamonds did just enough to cut that to 11 by the finish.

The Silver Ferns’ win levelled the four-game series at 2-2, but the cumulative goal tally for the series saved Australia, and allowed the Diamonds to sign off on 2015 as Netball World Cup gold medallists, Constellation Cup winners and world no. 1.

VIS athlete Jo Weston was a member of the Diamonds squad for the series.
