NZ turn over the ball and race down court. Mes with the rebound off a Tutaia long shot.
NOW I'll call it - less than a minute to go and the game is NZ's.
Scrappy end and Kopua grabs a specatular rebound
Huge cheers from the NZ supporters. They are rightly wrapt with what they have seen from their team. This is a big statement from an NZ side nearly everyone had written off.
Australia looks a little shell-shocked to be honest.
I had no idea what to expect from NZ heading into this match....now we know - they can handle pressure, they can change their game, they have defenders who can turnover ball at will and have composure on attack.
BUT this will be a big slap for the Aussies (and their fans). There's been a feeling here, that they only need to show up to win this tournament. Now they know that is far from the case, given what we've also seen from England and Jamaica.
Makes life a littler easier for us Kiwis in Sydney at the moment after last night too!.
Yes, that ends Australia's 21 match unbeaten run, including the last nine over the Ferns.
Dana's match report will be up on nzherald.co.nz shortly, and we'll have heaps of reaction from both camps online and on-air.
Thanks for tagging along with me! Was super-fun....I guess winning helps!
