Australia vs New Zealand Tips


Australia play their first match since securing the Netball World Cup crown back in August, with the world champions looking to stamp their authority on the opening Constellation Cup game.

New Zealand have beaten England twice in their last two outings, with this helping to dull the pain of their eventual fourth-placed finish at the 2023 Netball World Cup. 

Head To Head


Australia have won their last five meetings with their opponents, while they have also won six of their last 10, with New Zealand winning the other four. 

Australia Form 


Australia may not have played a competitive match since early August, but they still arrive for this one as the favourites after securing the Netball World Cup in their last outing. 

Their 61-45 win over England helped them to bounce back from a stunning 56-55 loss to the same opponents mere days before the final, and it once again put on full display just how good the Diamonds are. 

While they were brilliant at the World Cup, Australia will know this means little heading into this series.

The hallmark of a great side is not only their ability to win, but their desire to continue to improve despite being at the top. I expect a big performance from the home side this week. 

New Zealand Form 


New Zealand were uncharacteristically poor at the Netball World Cup, with a fourth-placed finish ultimately well below what they would have expected. 

A draw with South Africa at the World Cup was followed by four-straight defeats to Jamaica, England and Jamaica again before they were beaten by England in late September. 

However, they have since bounced back and beaten England twice to generate some momentum for themselves. 

The Silver Ferns know they have what it takes to beat Australia, but can they find a way to ensure they hit the ground running in a series they have been dominated in?

Verdict

I am backing the Australian Diamonds to start as they mean to go on as they secure a win in the opening game of the series. However, I am backing New Zealand with a handicap of +5.5 as they keep things tight on the scoreboard.
