Netball supporters will get the chance to see the Commonwealth Games Gold Medal-winning Australian Diamonds in action as they take on the New Zealand Silver Ferns and England Netball Team this October.
Sydney’s Allphones Arena will host the Diamonds against the Silver Ferns on Saturday 11 October (7pm), with the Diamonds then taking on England at Canberra’s AIS Arena on Wednesday 22 October (7pm).
The games form part of the Australian Diamonds 2014 International Test Series, with further games scheduled for both Melbourne and Bendigo.
The NSW Swifts could be well represented in these games, with five members of the 2015 Swifts’ Roster in the 18-strong 2014 Australian Diamonds’ squad – Julie Corletto, Kimberlee Green, Sharni Layton, Susan Pratley and Caitlin Thwaites – plus import player, Jade Clarke, will run out for England.
These October Internationals will be the last opportunity for fans to watch the Diamonds on Australian soil before the 2015 Netball World Cup in Sydney. Tickets for these Internationals are now on general public via Ticketek.
