Three Swifts to face Silver Ferns in Brisbane
After a five goal loss at the hands of a talent-laden Silver Ferns outfit in Melbourne last weekend, 2008 NSW Swifts premiership players Susan Pratley, Kim Green and Rebecca Bulley, will be hoping to turn around the Diamonds’ fortunes in the final test in Brisbane this Sunday.
With a change in routine and pace the order of the week, Diamonds coach, Norma Plummer, transported her team away from the hustle and bustle to a team camp in Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast in preparation for the final test.
A splash with the dolphins at Sea World earlier in the week may just prove to be the right ingredient to getting her ‘young and relatively inexperienced’ line-up across the line against a confident NZ side.
With the Silver Ferns gaining a lot of confidence out of their opening test victory, the Diamonds will be hoping for an improved performance in front of a vocal Brisbane crowd.
