The Australian Diamonds have recouped the Constellation Cup after beating the Silver Ferns 57-53 on the Gold Coast.

The Silver Ferns led 30-25 at half time. However, they had a horror third quarter, which they lost 19-8.

Australian shooters Sophie Garbin and Steph Wood started running rings around the New Zealand defenders, while the Ferns found it harder to get ball to their shooters.

This meant the Silver Ferns found themselves six goals down as they headed into the final turn, but they were unable to close the gap.

The win levelled the series 2-all but the Diamonds won the cup by way of greater goal percentage.

Australia has now won the Constellation Cup 10 times, to New Zealand’s two.
