Plummer rules out making too many changes despite series all wrapped up

5:59 am on 23 September 2009

The series has been won, but Australian netball coach Norma Plummer has ruled out making radical changes to her team for tonight's final Test against New Zealand in Auckland.

Australia takes an unassailable 3-1 lead into the fifth and final match of the series after recording three straight wins over their greatest foes.

The Diamonds have the chance to record their biggest winning streak over New Zealand in eleven years.

Not since 1998 have Australia beaten the Silver Ferns four successive times, or defeated them back to back in New Zealand in the same year.

Pride apart, the Silver Ferns will be looking to celebrate Irene van Dyk's 100th Test for New Zealand.

While Plummer says while there might be changes, she ruled out drastic alterations as she stressed the current unit had only played together for the past three matches.

Shooter Catherine Cox is back in the lineup after missing Sunday's match with an ankle injury.
