Taumaunu absolutely giving it to her defenders.
Mes - 27/31 and Brown - 15/18.
Tutaia on for NZ in the only change.
Cullen is filthy, she's just been shoved to the ground again by B. Kumwenda, shakes her head at the umpire..."she's been doin it all day ref"
Aussie crowd predictably roaring for MAL.
Cullen needs to keep her cool though.
Huge amount of whistle now - Ferns fans baying for some calls, Aussies booing when it goes against MAL.
Touche, Dana has just said the same thing. They will feel pretty battered after the last two game.
Malawi still battling though, they're certainly not out of it.
Nice patience from MAL to eventually find Kumwenda, who thrills the crowd with a big splits jump.
Langman spills it up the other end and MAL have possession
Held ball though, NZ attack earns its defensive stripes.
Dana " I think the umpire is losing control down there"
"down there" being the MAL defensive end.
The crowd really finding their voice now.
Malawi with possession to try to close to 1.
But the turnover goes against WA Kumwenda, NZ win it back and Mes converts.
NZ back by five, and with possession.
Time out called again, this time by MAL with just under five to go.
Coaches give their final words and off they go for the last five minutes.
MAL going backwards and NZ win it back, and score two quick goals to restore a 6 goal advanteage
Scorer apologises for creating unnecessary tension.
Everyone can relax now. NZ have this game in the bag and will be the only unbeaten team in the competition.
I think they call that winning ugly.
The Ferns don't look very happy with that, more relieved than anything.
I always remember tennis player Andy Roddick's motto at a grand slam "survive and advance". NZ has done that again, but there'll certainly be some bruises and they'll be grateful for the day off tomorrow.
So that's another one down. Dana is working feverishly on her match report, which will be up on the www.nzherald.co.nz shortly. We'll have all the reaction coming soon from the press conferences.
Next game is v Uganda on Friday, then it's semi-finals time!
