It was the Diamonds biggest winning margin against New Zealand since 2012.

Head coach Lisa Alexander told Netball Australia she couldn't ask for much more from her side.

“Today we achieved what we set out to do, which was that continuous improvement within each game. That’s the challenge I put to the players at the start," she said.

“They should be extraordinarily pleased with themselves, they represented our country and netball in Australia with discretion."

Australia was ruthless from the start of the match and was able to push a five-all tie halfway through the first quarter to an eight-goal lead heading into the break. 

The Silver Ferns made several changes in the second quarter while Australia stuck with their starting team. 

However, Jo Weston was forced off the court to the bench due to the blood rule so April Brandley was brought into the game.

Susan Pettitt came on at goal attack the third quarter, while Emily Mannis came on at goal keeper with five minutes remaining. 

The changes were flawless as connections fired across the court. 

They went into the break at three-quarter time up 54-37.

The fourth term saw Paige Hadley injected into the game at wing attack, her first time back on the court for Australia in 12 months. 

It was also a milestone game for Kim Ravaillion, who made her 50th appearance for Australia after debuting in 2013. 

The Diamonds will now head back Australia with the Commonwealth Games team expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
