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.
