6:43 pm on 22 May 2011

The Queensland Firebirds have won the trans-Tasman netball championship after beating the Northern Mystics 57-44 in the grand final in Brisbane.

The Mystics, who were looking for New Zealand's first title in the competition, trailed by just two at half time, however the homeside took control from then with star shooter Romelda Aitken finishing off some great midcourt work by the Firebirds.

Queensland outscored the Mystics 18-8 in the third quarter as the Mystics ball dried up.

The Firebirds went through the season unbeaten.
