Australian coach Lisa Alexander defended her heavy player rotation in their shock 55-44 hammering from New Zealand in the third Constellation Cup Test. The Silver Ferns pounced on an error-riddled performance from the Diamonds in Hamilton and lifted their own standards several notches as Noeline Taurua claimed her first major scalp as coach. Australia missed a chance to equal a record winning streak over the Kiwis and secure the Constellation Cup.
