Third Constellation Cup Test tonight

diamonds

The Australian Diamonds will take home court advantage into the third Test of the 2013 Constellation Cup tonight (Friday 4 October) as they aim for back-to-back wins.

The Diamonds host the New Zealand Silver Ferns in Adelaide with the two teams on level pegging in the series after notching one win apiece across the Tasman.

The Diamonds displayed greater intensity in Game Two to take the honours, form they will be aiming to repeat tonight.

The NSW Swifts will be well represented once again, both on and off the court, with Club co-captain Kimberlee Green lining up beside 2014 teammates Sharni Layton and Caitlin Thwaites in the Green & Gold, while netball fans can listen to Swifts Vice-Captain Susan Pratley’s special comments on SBS.

You can watch all the action LIVE from Adelaide on FOX SPORTS 1 and SBS 2 from 8:00pm AEST.

NSW Swifts Head Coach Rob Wright has taken a look at how the Constellation Cup stats tell the story in The Wright Call – Constellation Cup: Part 1.

Tonight’s Adelaide Test is the first of three Constellation Cup legs on the Diamonds’ home soil with fixtures to follow in Melbourne (Monday 7 October) and Canberra (Sunday 13 October).
