New Zealand have blown Australia away 41-16 in the final of the Fast 5 netball world series at Hisense Arena in Melbourne.
Facing a daunting 17-point deficit heading into their last quarter power play, Australia failed to score a single point when double points were on offer.
New Zealand sharp shooter Maria Tutaia was on fire and amassed 27 personal points, including five three-pointers, two of which counted for double during her side's second-quarter power play.
The Silver Ferns' power play netted 18 points and effectively ended the Diamonds' tilt at claiming their first Fast 5 title and completing netball's slam.
Australia were favourites heading into the final after reaching the decider undefeated and beating New Zealand 32-29 in their electrifying pool game on Saturday night, which was their only loss.
Fast 5 is netball's answer to T20 cricket. The 26-minute matches feature hybrid rules, five players per side, multiple-point shots and power plays.
Fast 5 Ferns captain Tutaia announced her retirement from the short form of the game after the 25-point grand final victory.
Tutaia was the tournament's second-highest scoring player with 129 points.
