New Zealand have won the third match of the Constellation Cup netball series 49-48 over Australia in Perth.

The Silver Ferns led throughout the match, up by five at quarter-time, six at half-time and five at three-quarter time.

However they lost the lead in the last five minutes before a couple of key turnovers helped them get back in front.

New Zealand now lead the five-match series 2-1 with the next game in Adelaide on Wednesday.

The first two matches of the Constellation Cup series were in New Zealand in June.
