Australia's youthful netball squad have lost a one-goal thriller to England in the opening match of their three-Test series.

The Diamonds, who are without five senior players, lost 41-40 in Liverpool the first time England have beaten Australia in a Test since 1981.

The teams meet again in Nottingham on Monday.
