Silver Ferns coach Ruth Aitken believes the end of year tour to England and Jamaica may be seen as a turning point for the New Zealand netball side come next year's Commonwealth Games in India.

After series losses to the world side and to Australia, the Silver Ferns have bounced back, winning the world series in Manchester and taking the first Test against a much improved Jamaica side 61-56 in Kingston yesterday.

The Silver Ferns play Jamaica again tomorrow in their final Test of the year.
