Silver Ferns won't meet Diamonds this year

Quarantine requirements in New Zealand and Australia and concerns about player welfare have contributed to the trans-Tasman netball tournament being moved until 2021.

However, the Silver Ferns and Diamonds will battle for two Constellation Cup titles next year, with one series scheduled for January/February and a second meeting scheduled for October.

"While it is disappointing not to be able to meet the Diamonds this year, we understand that in a year such as this, prioritising athlete welfare is paramount," Netball New Zealand head of high performance Keir Hansen said.
