International netball is back!

Traditional rivals, redemption, a new city and an eye towards next year’s World Cup headlines the 2018 International Test Series that will see Australia challenge England, New Zealand and South Africa.

The first major international test series since the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, the Samsung Diamonds will open the 2018 Quad Series with a clash against the South Africa Spar Proteas in Auckland, before returning to home for the much anticipated grudge match against Commonwealth Games champions the England Roses on 19 September in Newcastle.

Rounding out the Quad Series, the Diamonds will clash with trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in Melbourne on 23 September.

Attention will then turn to the Constellation Cup in October when the Diamonds continue their battle with arch-rivals the Silver Ferns.

The four-game series will start at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on 7 October before heading to North Queensland on the 10 October for the first ever international game in Townsville.

The Townsville fixture will also mark the last time Australia will play on home soil before the 2019 World Cup in England.
