11:32 pm on 14 August 2015

New Zealand has cruised to a 76-33 victory over Uganda on the eve of their Netball World Cup semi-final against England.

The Silver Ferns got off to a flying start, scoring nine unanswered goals, and finished the first quarter 20-3.

Kayla Cullen, Bailey Mes, and Casey Kopua were rested tonight, while Maria Tutaia brought up her 100th test when she was introduced in the final quarter.

Uganda had a far better second quarter but the Ferns still went to the main-break 39-16 and never looked back.

Jodi Brown shot 22 from 29 after her three quarters, and Malia Paseka 49 from 55.

Among other positional changes, Laura Langman shared wing defence duties with Katrina Grant.
