10:33 am on 27 January 2013

The Australian national netball side's suffered an embarrassing 3-0 series whitewash at the hands of England after going down 58-51 in the final test in Birmingham.

For the second consecutive game, the Australians lead at the end of the first and second quarters before England bounced back in the second half to claim victory.

England had already made history by beating the Diamonds at Wembley to clinch their first-ever series win over the number one ranked side.

The Diamonds are without a couple of key players like captain Natalie von Bertouch who had to return home with an injury, but England are also missing some ANZ Championship players like Jade Clarke and Geva Mentor.
