New Zealand has made it to the final of the World Netball Championships in Singapore after beating old rivals England 49-34 on Saturday night.

The Silver Ferns led 23-18 at half-time and, soon after, pushed that lead out to 10 points, before extending it to 39-26 at the end of the third quarter.

It was the toughest match of the competition so far for New Zealand after easy pool match wins over Fiji, Wales and Trinidad and Tobago and a 58-28 win over South Africa in the quarter-finals on Friday.
