Celebrating a rare visit to Tasmania, the Silver Ferns made it one win apiece in the Constellation Cup after posting a 53-51 win over Australian in Launceston on Wednesday.
The Silver Ferns rebounded strongly from their 12-goal First Test loss three days ago to deliver new coach Janine Southby her first win over Australia and set the four-Test Series alight heading into the New Zealand leg of the series.
The Silver Ferns retained the same playing 12 to the First Test but made changes to the starting line-up with Te Paea Selby-Rickit getting the nod at goal attack and Anna Harrison slotting in at goalkeeper.
