Young Ferns star ready to play despite stitches

6:51 am on 19 September 2008

The Silver Ferns defender Casey Williams will be available for tomorrow night's second netball Test against Australia despite sporting stitches from a head clash early in the first test on Wednesday night.

Williams collided with the Australian shooter Kate Beveridge only five minutes into the match, but after a prolonged break she completed the match and was one of the standout players for the home side.

Meanwhile the Australian coach Norma Plummer will make a decision on the fitness of first choice shooter Catherine Cox at today's training session.
