Media Update
Sunday 3 September, 2017
 
Silver Ferns 57 def Australian Diamonds 47
The Silver Ferns have produced an outstanding turnaround in performance to beat the world champions, the Australian Diamonds, 57-47, and take out the Quad Series for the first time.
 
Coming off the back of a loss to the English Roses, the Silver Ferns pulled together their most cohesive effort of their three Tests in this series, and kept control throughout the 60 minutes at ILT Stadium Southland in Invercargill.  It also marked the Silver Ferns’ 50th victory over Australia.
 
After South Africa's SPAR Proteas upset England 54-51 in the opening match in Invercargill, New Zealand were given the task of beating Australia by four to win the Quad Series.
