Testing its squad depth could be
the way to go for the Silver Ferns.
That was one of ex-Silver Fern
Jodi Brown’s key thoughts when
mulling over the situation the team
finds itself in.
The side let slip a six-goal fourth-
quarter lead in its first outing at
the Northern Q uad Series against
England in London, eventually
going down 64-57 in overtime.
That came on the back of four
consecutive losses to Australia late
last year in the Constellation Cup
It is something that needs
addressing before it faces South
Africa in Johannesburg tomorrow
However, even more pertinent is
the Commonwealth Games, now
just 69 days away.
Brown said cutting out mistakes
and getting back match fitness were
key, but she felt it would be useful
to dig deeper into the squad.
“ I’d like to see her (coach Janine
Southby) try some of the other
players,’’ she said.
“The likes of a Te Paea Selby-
Rickit or a Whitney Souness. She’s
said she wants to see these young
ones under pressure and obviously
see them before the selection of the
Commonwealth Games (squad).
“ But we haven’t seen them; we
haven’t seen those players in that
situation. So we don’t know what
they can do.’’
She said the Quad Series would be
the time to do that, as losing there
would be forgiven if a gold medal
was won at the Commonwealth
However, she felt a team of 12 was
needed to do that.
At present both England and
Australia had shown they went 12
players deep, whereas New Zealand
had not gone further than nine.
Both of those countries
represented big challenges, as did
South Africa which she said had
improved greatly and Jamaica
which brought the X-factor.
Brown said getting more game
time would help the Silver Ferns.
While the players would have
been training over summer, it was
not quite the same as having to
make pressure decisions late in the
game while being tired.
It was the basics the side needed
to nail before its next match though,
as individual errors added up.
“They need to learn how to
treasure the ball first and foremost
and not commit those silly personal
“In the end, if one person on the
court each does a personal error,
they do add up. That ’s where you’re
losing the ball and losing goals.
“So ball retention will be huge on
their to-do list, being able to nail
those critical moments when you’re
under pressure, when you’re up by
six or seven.
“Netball’s a pretty simple game;
you’ve just got to score your centre
“I know it ’s easier said than done,
but it ’s pretty easy when you get
given the ball 50% of the time. ’’

Silver Ferns need to test
depth — Brown
In the midst of one of the all-time

and his team-mates will simply
keep on keeping on in tonight’s
second Twenty20 clash against
Having won a record 13 completed
matches on the trot since December,
few can envisage anything other
than a clear New Zealand victory
tonight in Auckland.
Aided in part by Munro’s unbeaten
49 off 43 balls, the Black Caps won
Monday ’s first T20 match against
Pakistan by a comfortable seven
Yet the in-form big-hitter insisted
his side would have to cope with
bouts of extreme Pakistani pressure

but that ’s what we’re trying to do,”
Munro told reporters.
“Series wins will take care of
themselves when those things are
happening. It’s always good because
when you’re winning, it’s the best
time to critique performances as
well, without people being down on

Bit-part T20 player Ross Taylor

while captain Kane Williamson is
expected to return from a stiff side.
With Ferguson and the fearsome
Boult to return, the Caps will be
even more deadly with the ball —

Pakistan could be equally strong
on their day, he believed, despite a
disastrous New Zealand tour that
has produced no wins from six
matches to date.
They were whitewashed 5-0 in
their ODI series.
“I think they’re a pretty
unpredictable team on their day
when they come out and play
to their potential they can beat
anyone,” the 30-year-old Munro
“ You can see that in the results
they ’ve had, but if we focus too
much on their strengths and
weaknesses, it takes away from
what we’re good at. ” — NZN
The New Zealand men’s hockey
team has been beaten 3-2 by India
on opening day at the second Four
Nations in Hamilton.
With the game locked up 1-1
at half-time, runners up from the
Tauranga leg of the series India
took advantage with two quick
goals in the third quarter which
ultimately proved the difference.
It was a special match for striker
Hugo Inglis who played in his
200th international appearance for
New Zealand at just 26 years old.
Man of the moment Inglis said
it was nice to bring up his 200th
in front of a home crowd but
bittersweet given the result.
“It’s a nice achievement personally
but disappointing that we weren’t
able to come away with the result
tonight,” he said.
“They ’re a tough side with great
skills and dangerous on the counter
attack so we need to find a way to
not allow them to be so clinical.
“ We’re looking for ward to getting
stuck in against Japan and are
looking for ward to the challenge.”
India struck first in the seventh
minute when Lalit Upadhyay
found the ball at his feet in the circle
and slipped one past goalkeeper
The Black Sticks equalised
midway through the second quarter
with Daniel Harris sweeping a
deflection into goal following the
initial shot from Inglis.
India surged ahead early in the
second half with two quick-fire
penalty corner goals from Harjeet
Singh and Rupinder Singh.
The Black Sticks were still well
in the contest when they pulled
the visitors’ lead back within one
goal in the 37th minute through a
strong Kane Russell penalty corner
Despite pouring on the pressure
in the final 20 minutes, New
Zealand were not able to find a way
through the Indian defence for the

Japan at 7.30pm tonight, following

There is just one objective for the
overseer of New Zealand’s 2018
Winter Olympic Games tilt before
next month’s Pyeongchang action.
Absolutely no surprises.
New Zealand chef de Mission
Pete Wardell, at the helm of his
third Winter Olympics, will jet off
to Korea today to settle his team’s
The athletes — at least 20 of them
— will arrive in early February, and
Wardell insists all the comforts of
home will await them.
It’s the best way for them to secure
success on the ice.
“There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes
(stuff ) going on in terms of all the
uniforms, entries and preparation
of the village, so that when the
athletes arrive, they ’ll get there and
go, wow, fantastic,” Wardell said.
“ It ’s like being at home. When
we’re there, it’s about no surprises
— you just go about your business,
you know exactly how to do it and
that ’s how we’re going to get you on
the podium. ”
Despite New Zealand’s abundance
of skiing and winter sport locations,
it ’s been 26 years since alpine skier
Annelise Coberger won Winter
Olympic silver in the women’s
slalom at the 1992 Games in

team would never have a better
opportunity to break that duck,
particularly in speedskating,
snowboarding and pipe-skiing.

field, while the Wells brothers

“The people who get on the
podiums are those who’ve been
on World Cup podiums over the
preceding season - it’s not the sort
of event where you come from
absolutely nowhere and get on the
podium,” Wardell said.
“ We’ve got people who’ve been on
World Cup and X-Games podiums
over the last couple of seasons, so
they have the potential to be there
without doubt.” — NZN
