Q3 12 minutes: Australia 38-33 NZ More changes in the defense: Rore is back in GD, but Watson could not retract the dorsals on time, so Kopua waits at the bench until the next goal is scored.
Q3 11 mins: Australia 38-31 NZ Here it turns out that WD changes: Browne just had too much space in Rore. Karin Burger joins the game and Ekenasio has also returned to GA by Folau.
Q3 10 minutes: Australia 36-30 NZ Strange moment with Bassett leaning to tie his mouse while the ball went back to the track. He gets up, finds it at his feet and shoots the goal.
Q3 8 minutes: Australia 34-27 NZ All this seems too easy for Diamonds at this time. The ferns do not seem to have answers. They are forcing a few business volumes, but their attacking game is so static, it is very concerned about the defense of the Diamonds.
Q3 6 minutes: Australia 32-26 NZ The crowd could join Erin to buy the referees that stop watching. Lots of screams when Folau follows his shots for 4-5 seconds.
Q3 4 minutes: Australia 32-24 NZ For some reason do we have a change of comment for the second half? Did Sharni Layton get a voice injury during rest? Now we give Dan Ryan there, you do not know how he did it with training in Northern Ireland. I would not have thought that a coach in a World Cup would have a second to think of anything else, but to train, but it would tighten it.
Q3 1 min: Australia from 29 to 24 hours Quick objective in Australia to start. The ZNs have brought Shannon Saunders to WA – an interesting change, would you have awaited a new WD? But Taurua knows what he's doing!
Towards a half-length analysis for three former major diamonds by Liz Ellis, Cath Cox and Kim Green.
Cox notes that the feeders found Bassett much more easily in the second quarter. Green is not sure about the price change in Hadley to WD – he thought price was generating some energy and he was not sure he had to play Hadley out of place.
Half day: Australia 28-22 NZ
Great fourth of the Diamonds that are shooting these individual battles on the whole track. The new combination of filming of Mes i Folau has only had two minutes until now, so we have to monitor the impact that may occur in the second half. Six goals are not very important in a game like this, so the game can still go in any way.
Q2 14 mins: Australia 26-21 NZ Welcome to the game Bailey Month! Here is a Bruce device to acclimate you!
Q2 13 mins: Australia 25-20 NZ Bailey Month rises from the bank with a GS backbone; It seems that the ferns are preparing to make a change.
Q2 12 minutes: Australia 25-18 NZ Now Australia really got it out. The ferns fight with the speed of attack and the suffocating nature of the defense. Meanwhile, Erin has offered generously to buy a watch for referees to help them with their ball calls. So kind to her!
Q2 10 minutes: Australia 24-18 NZ Browne is not bothered by Rore's reach, she is overtaking her and hitting the circle so that her arms do not step on. New Zealand can look for having a faster WD option.
Q2 8 minutes: Australia 21-17 NZ Erin was right about Bassett: she is looking much more for this match than before. Not so many of those little ones that were in their game.
Q2 7 minutes: Australia 19-16 NZ Fully adjusts with space to stop, instead of space so that the ball passes into the area that helps you to move behind Bruce. A foot call at Price gives Ferns the opportunity to return.
Q2 5 minutes: Australia 19-14 NZ Another brilliant advice from Bruce – NZ will have to do something for mounting to the shooting circle.
Q2 4 mins: Australia 18-14 NZ A balloon call held at Folau gives Diamonds the opportunity to expand their advantage.
Q2 3 mins: Australia 16-14 NZ The ferns show doubts at the time of putting the ball to Folau with Bruce everywhere. Bruce seems to have the advantages of this battle so far. But at the other end of the track, Jane Watson also has victories over Bassett.
Q2 1 min: Australia 15-11 NZ There are no changes for the second quarter or for teams or for diamonds, and they are still alive, marking easily.
Quarterly Time: Australia 13-10 NZ
What first quarter! The advantage and the ball collapsed up and down, but they were the Australians who settled when it imported and ended a few solid goals to take the vital advantage of the first quarter.
Q1 14 minutes: Australia 12-10 NZ Two attack contacts on either end of the track send the ball back and forth, and then both WAs make some crucial mistakes with out-of-play and playback calls. There is a bit of garbage out there.
Q1 12 minutes: Australia 11-9 NZ An enormous advice from Bruce sends the ball into the hands of Weston and the attackers are able to capitalize. These little moments will be made or broken in this game.
Q1 11 minutes: Australia 9-9 NZ Erin tells me that stadium fans show an obvious frustration by the inability of the referees to keep pace with the move. We will continue to watch how this works.
Q1 10 minutes: Australia 8-8 NZ A long shot from Folau has just come out and gives the diamond the chance to match.
Q1 8 minutes: Australia 6-7 NZ It's a tough battle here and neither team is giving an inch. The ferns are frustrated with the defense adjusted, but able to see through the disorder at this time.
Q1 6 minutes: Australia 4-2 NZ The first party billing is forced by Courtney Bruce and executed by a court in front of Steph Wood to mark the two defenders. Australia leads 4-2.
Q1 5 minutes: Australia 3-2 NZ Australia, without a doubt, seems more settled at first. The ferns seem to be shaking, turning back, doubtful to the feeding. But nothing matters when Folau gets the ball in his hands and sank the long bombs.
Q1 3 minutes: Australia 1-1 NZ The toughest pass to the New Zealand goal, but they do it with patience to Folau.
Q1 2 minutes: Australia 0-1 NZ The first goal is for Steph Wood and the Diamonds draw the first blood of the night.
Q1 1 min: Australia 0-0 New Zealand Here we come! Australia with the first central step.
Erin has directed my concerns about Caitlin Bassett, and tells me that "I think CBass seems set, relaxed, but focused." Good news for fans of Diamonds, we hope you take it to the game.
One thing I'm looking forward to in this game is to see how the two teams respond to the pressure, which until now has not seen this world cup. It was interesting to talk with Diamonds' performance analyst Dr Mitch Mooney before the tournament about how they evaluated the silver medal in the Commonwealth Games last year. The key to him was to find out how to learn a great victory in the way they learn of a victory or a loss. It will be fascinating to see if this time they have discovered it. More of Mitch's thoughts here:
Another update by Erin at the stadium. He just met the Collingwood Magpies coach, Rob Wright, and got his board for the match. Rob feels very confident in the opportunities of the diamonds and thinks that they will gain the victory by eight.
Now Lisa Alexander tells him:
"This is our test, that's why we play and do everything we need for training."
She mentions her combination of attacks as an "experienced and winning combination."
Noeline Taurua has talked to the commentators of Liverpool right now.
"After this game we will definitely know where we are in the order and what we have to improve".
Thinking about this Australian line and there's a lot to unpack in there. Caitlin Bassett, although he has won many goals in the first five games, has not seen her any better. A lot of traps, some shots easy to lose and their time has been a bit out. Diamonds will need to be better tonight.
In the midst of the field, Liz Watson is widely considered the best WA in the world, but is playing in C. This seems to have room for Kelsey Browne to partner with his former companions from Lightning to Bassett and Steph Wood This has been a solid combination so far and I hope that the bet to move Watson out of position is approaching.
Jamie-Lee Price is not tested at this level and has not played much in WD this season in Super Netball. Arbitrage will also be a factor, since the price has a physical tendency and it remains to see how much physics will allow the referees. If it is out of play too often, it will facilitate the passage from the fern to the goal.
Erin Delahunty lives in the stadium and tells me that in Australia there was a joy much greater than New Zealand when they entered the court. Interesting to consider the usual animosity between English and Australian sports fans. I wonder if it could have something to do with the fact that so many English players are in Super Netball, so that English fans have followed Australian competition and have warmed up with some players? Or, possibly, there are many noisy Australians on the track!
Of course, the other great party tonight will be at 5 in the morning of the AEST, when England will assume South Africa. South Africans trained by Norm Plummer are in a brilliant shape and without the defense of Layla Guscoth, the Roses may be vulnerable.
Although both teams are still guaranteed to play the semifinals, it will be a fascinating test of where both teams will be before these important finals.
The night before, Northern Ireland just called Barbados with a 46-43 victory. This makes Northern Ireland in match 9-10 and Barbados at 11-12.
You can also update your memory with my team-by-team guide and laugh about how some of my predictions were wrong. They were simpler times: a week ago …
Before arriving to the game, we will recover from what has happened recently. Before the rest day yesterday, the Diamonds easily explained Malawi: here was analyzed very well the always wonderful Erin Delahunty that is in Liverpool.
Initial line: New Zealand
Interesting to see who Taurusa also has. They are up to WD, which can cause problems for the shorter diamond player at Kelsey Browne in WA
GS Maria Folau
GA Ameliaranne Ekenasio
WA Gina Crampton
C Laura Langman
WD Katrina Rore
GD Casey Kopua
GK Jane Watsom
Initial line: Australia
And the list of teams is for Australia. Lisa Alexander has been very forceful with his selections so far, so now we know what he considers his first 7.
GS Caitlin Bassett
GA Steph Wood
WA Kelsey Brown
C Liz Watson
WD Jamie-Lee Price
GD Jo Weston
GK Courtney Bruce
Well, here we are prepared for the biggest game of Diamonds so far. Neither team has been tested yet: diamonds have an average profit margin of more than 58 goals and, while silver ferns are considerably less, none of the things tend to matter when these Two teams arrive at the track. While the Ferns were disappointing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games, they just provoked a challenge for the Diamonds, they were upgraded under the new coach Noeline Taurua and they undoubtedly gained Australian experience. The point is if they have 60 minutes of exercise to finish a game at this intensity. With only Laura Langman and Maria Folau playing Super Netball, most ferns play ANZ Premiership, which does not provide the same level of intensity. So many questions, soon enough for some answers!
