NSW Swifts Mo’onia Gerrard and Susan Pratley will provide expert analysis for SBS as part of their coverage of the forthcoming Australian Diamonds International Series.

SBS, along with FOX SPORTS, will broadcast the Constellation Cup netball test matches between the Australian Diamonds and the New Zealand Silver Ferns LIVE in September and October.

New Zealand will host the first two tests in Invercargill and Auckland before the series heads to Australian Shores with a further three Tests.

Both networks, SBS and FOX SPORTS, will also broadcast the two test matches between the Australian Diamonds and the Malawi Queens in October.

2014 NSW Swifts contracted defensive specialist Mo’onia Gerrard will join host Tracey Holmes and former Swift Selina Hornibrook to provide analysis for the first test, with goal shooter Susan Pratley to join SBS for the remaining six tests.

Having played a combined 122 Tests for the Australian Diamonds, both Mo’onia and Susan will bring to the coverage a wealth of experience and insider knowledge.

In addition to the commentary team, the Club will be well represented on-court with 2014 NSW Swifts’ Kimberlee Green, Sharni Layton, Caitlin Thwaites and Paige Hadley (Malawi tests only) all in the current Australian Diamonds team.
