    Maria Folau and Ameliaranne Ekenasio have stood tall under pressure, to send the Silver Ferns into the netball World Cup final

    Maria Folau and Ameliaranne Ekenasio have stood tall under pressure, to send the Silver Ferns into the netball World Cup final


    New Zealand have pipped England 47-45 in their semi-final in Liverpool to set up a meeting with Australia who overcame South Africa in their match.

    Folau and Ekenasio combined to shoot at 90 percent, with Ekenasio missing just one of her 26 shots at goal.

    Silver Ferns coach Noeline Taurua says they've been trying to get more ball to the shooters consistently.



    It's the first time the Silver Ferns have beaten England since 2017.
