    Bleh!!! We hate being beaten by New Zealand in anything!!

    But congrats to them anyway........I thought the Australian captain, Harby-Williams was a little arrogant when saying it was the 'end of an era'......does she mean her retirement?

    Australia had a right to be arrogant because since 1990 or so they've been pretty much unbeatable..NZ have beaten them a few times but not consistently.

    But the netball competition in NZ is now heavily sponsored & gets television coverage like the Basketball & I think these 2 sports are very much on the rise in NZ...infact Netball gets the most playing numbers out of any sport in NZ so good times ahead for NZ at international level? despite there really only being 2 or 3 good teams anyway.

    i dont know quite what it is but Australia vs New Zealand games tend to bring out the best in both sides and are usually very close, be the sport Netball, Cricket, Rguby or even League

    Congrats to the siverferns on a great win
