Silver Ferns coach keen to talk to van Dyk after Perth battering

The Silver Ferns netball coach Wai Taumaunu says she's keen to talk to Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic shooter Irene van Dyk in the wake of van Dyk's problems against the West Coast Fever at the weekend.

The Magic suffered their first trans-Tasman competition loss in almost a year, when they lost 57-51 in Perth.

After the match van Dyk accused the Fever defenders of foul play, saying they were excessively aggressive and was critical of the umpires letting their tactics go unpunished.

Taumaunu says comments from the Fever coaching staff would tend to support van Dyk's comments.
