Golden Year for Silver Ferns
2005 has proved an incredible year for NZ netball, with the Silver Ferns winning all eight of their international tournaments. The latest came with a definitive Tri-Series victory over Jamaica and Barbados. “We certainly wanted to finish strongly because it was our last test of the year,” said an elated NZ coach, Ruth Aitken. The Silver Ferns are now favourites to win gold at next year’s Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.
