Plummer expects van Dyk to move

12:40 pm on 17 September 2009

Australia's netball coach Norma Plummer believes New Zealand shooter Irene van Dyk could switch positions for the return clash with her world champion team in Invercargill on Sunday.

Van Dyk, international netball's most capped player, was given a rough ride during the Australian leg of the series by her marker Susan Fuhrmann, who picked up two player of the match awards.

Van Dyk's conversion rate normally hovers around 90 percent but she shot just under 75 per cent in the third Test in Brisbane.

She has been occasionally been used at goal attack before and Plummer believes there maybe a switch for the next two Tests.

Plummer expects a strong fightback from the Silver Ferns saying while the Diamonds are 2-1 they haven't won the series.
