Trans Tasman competition gives Silver Ferns some knowledge on new lineup

8:20 am on 17 September 2008

It's a new look Australian netball side, but there's not too much new as far as the Silver Ferns are concerned.

The 2 sides meet in the first of 2 tests in Christchurch tonight.

With five members of the Australian lineup that won the world champs last year not playing, either through retirement or injury, the tourists have a new look to them...but it's unlikely to catch the Silver Ferns off guard according to captain Julie Seymour.

Seymour says they know all the Australians individually... the question will be how well they gel as a team.

The second test is in Auckland on Saturday night.
