New Zealand have won the 2021 Constellation Cup after a beating arch rivals Australia in Christchurch.

The Silver Ferns produced a stunning comeback in the final quarter to win the series 3-1.

After being eight goals down just after halftime the Ferns eventually won 45-43.

The key to the victory was a superb 7 goal run in the third quarter to bring the team back into the game. That moment ultimately turned the game.

Ferns coach Dame Noeline Taurua predicted a strong second half pre game and she was correct.

Shooter Maia Wilson again carried the scoring load, converting 36/40 for a 90% success rate.
