The Silver Ferns have beaten England 48-42 in game one of the Taini Jamison Trophy series in Christchurch.

Tiana Metuarau, on her debut, was a standout for the new look Silver Ferns. The new 20-year-old goal attack did not miss a single shot in the first half.

Metuarau ended the game with 17 goals from 19 attempts at 89 percent.

The Silver Ferns had the advantage after the first quarter, leading 12-11. By half time the lead was 26-21.

However, a solid third quarter and then the first 3 goals of the forth quarter saw the England team draw level to the Silver Ferns. This drew a quick response from New Zealand who went on a 4 goal run of their own which ultimately won the game.

Game two of the three game series is on Wednesday night in Christchurch.
