Silver Fern Grace Rasmussen's chances of making the New Zealand netball team are in doubt after the midcourter was carried off court with what appeared a serious knee injury in Sydney last night.
Rasmussen's Northern Mystics also lost their trans-Tasman championship match with the New South Wales Swifts, dropping out of the top four.
The Swifts' 53-46 win takes them to third behind the Queensland Firebirds and Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic.
They're just above Melbourne on percentage but level with the Vixens and fifth-placed Mystics on 14 points.
The Silver Ferns squad for the World Champs in Singapore in June will be named today at midday.
And Central Pulse beat the Canterbury Tactix 47-45 in Christchurch in last night's other match.
