Game two of Constellation Cup

By Rahia Timutimu

Tonight, the Silver Ferns will play game two of the Constellation Cup, and try and make it two from two when they play the Australian Diamonds at Vector Arena.

The Silver Ferns won their last encounter by four points and know that Australia will fight harder and stronger tonight to make it 1-all.

The Silver Ferns' win against the Australian Diamonds on Sunday may have made the nation happy but the players know it's not time to celebrate as there is much to improve on before tonight's game.

Wing Attack (WA) is a position that needs focus. 
Anna Thompson and Mäori netballer, Courtenay Tairi, both played half a game in the position, but Waimarama Taumaunu wasn't completely happy.

Despite issues with the WA position, Laura Langman has dominated the Centre position. If she gets chosen again to start tonight, it will be her 92nd consecutive Silver Ferns test.

The Diamonds have lost five consecutive tests, but the Silver Ferns know their Tasman rivals will be going all out to make sure it won't be number six tonight, as the Silver Ferns look to get another win under their belt before they head to Australia next month.
