7:00 am on 7 October 2011

The Silver Ferns have wrapped up the two-Test netball series with England with a 53-32 win in Invercargill.

It was New Zealand shooter Irene van Dyk's 200th international, and coach Ruth Aitken's final home Test.

Victory was never in doubt for the home side, who won the opening match of the short series 62-40.

Again Aitken was able to use most of her squad with 11 players getting time on court.

Shooter van Dyk started her record 200th international and shot 20 from 21 before Catherine Latu took her place in the second half and shot 13 from 13.

The Silver Ferns now play Austraia in a three-Test series across the Tasman at the end of the month.
