Silver Ferns to defend Constellation Cup against Australia in October at Trustpower Arena
Netball New Zealand has confirmed the Silver Ferns will go up against the Australian Diamonds on both sides of the Tasman in October. The Silver Ferns will defend their Constellation Cup title when they meet the Diamonds in four Tests, played as part of the Cadbury Netball Series.
The rivalry resumes on this side of the Tasman at Spark Arena in Auckland on 12 October and Trustpower Baypark Arena Tauranga on 16 October. The Silver Ferns then head off on their first trip to Australia since late 2019, with matches on Wednesday 19 October and Sunday 23 October (venues still TBC).
Silver Ferns head coach Dame Noeline Taurua said there was plenty of world class netball to look forward to after such a disrupted international calendar over the past few years. “It’s exciting to be able to confirm the Cadbury Netball Series with the opportunity to defend the Constellation Cup against our toughest rivals and we can’t wait for the rivalry to resume,” she said. The Silver Ferns ended a nine-year drought in 2021, securing the Constellation Cup after winning the series 3-1 in Christchurch.
