6:41 pm on 29 August 2012

The Australia netball captain Natalie von Bertouch's finally overcome an injury-plagued year to begin training with the Diamonds squad, just in time for next month's Constellation Cup against New Zealand.

The Diamonds are currently involved in a five-day training camp in Canberra with von Bertouch back in the fold for the first time in a year.

Von Bertouch was made captain last year and guided Australia to the world championship title before enduring a bad run of injuries.

Their first Test against the Silver Ferns is in Melbourne two weeks on Sunday.
