and they'v gone against NZ
3/4 time and NZ has grown the advantage 40-34.
@Antony: it could. But it will give NZ huge belief. I genuinely don't think the coaching staff knew how they'd handle this pressure.
Will the Aussies make changes for the final quarter? Easy to forget it's still only pool play!
16, 233 the official attendance. A world record crowd for netball.
Changes for Australia: Hadley on at WA for Green.
Final quarter underway and Aussie peg one back.
My word, that shot of Tutaia is spectacular when it's on song.
If NZ wins, they will go into a pool with Jamaica, if NZ loses they will go in with England. Teams play another set of round robin to determine the semi-finalists.
43-38 now to NZ, getting tighter.
Bit of luck on the rebound from Mes and she gets another. She's really stood up this arvo.
Tutaia from her hotspot - no drama there 45-39.
The gap is now just four. Here come the Aussies!
45-42 with eight minutes to go and NZ call time-out.
de Bruin getting some treatment on her calf as a massive Aussie cheer rings around the stadium. It's very very loud!
Ferns coaches have had a few brief words and they're heading back out.
Really important shot from Tutaia there, important settler for NZ and now Aussie has thrown it away.
Ferns seem to have regrouped a bit now, scored the last three since the time out to be 48-42.
Umpires time - Mes is bleeding for the cause.
Back underway, Aust possession.
Bassett misses an easy one - this is the ropiest game I've seen her play for some time.
Five to go in the match and NZ lead 49-44 as Tutaia misses a long way.
Nice movement there from Bassett, Aussie close to within four.
Ferns attack having to be very patient and composed, looked a little shaky there for a minute but I guess it doesn't matter how you get to goal, as long as it goes in!
Bell misses under the goal. 50-46 NZ.
Biiiigggg moment her for NZ, lots of faffing around on attack, but eventually Mes gets it in.
Less than two to go now and Ferns lead by five.
I won't call it just yet - I've seen too many chaotic things in sport!
