Australia wins first netball test

9:23 am on 30 August 2010

Australia have won the first netball test beating New Zealand 48-43 in Adelaide.

The Silver Ferns made a great start to be up early, however Australia levelled at quarter-time and led 23-21 at half time.

New Zealand made some changes at half time with Liana Barrett-Chase going on at wing attack and Temapara George moving to centre.

It helped as New Zealand led 36-35 at three-quarter time, however the homeside surged home with some great defence in the final quarter to take the win.

The second of 3 tests is in Wellington on Thursday.
