Australia Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander won't let her side forget their Commonwealth Games heartbreak as Australia aims for a ninth‑straight win against the Silver Ferns tomorrow.
Australia are experiencing a rare period of dominance over their traditional netball rivals and will enter Townsville's Constellation Cup fixture as favourites.
But the wounds have barely healed since England's shock 52‑51 defeat of the Diamonds in April to claim Commonwealth gold and Alexander says the bitter taste of that loss would be enough to stave off any complacency.
The Diamonds are wary of what's to come though under new coach Noelene Taurua and comeback New Zealand captain Laura Langman.
The four‑Test series will be completed in New Zealand with games in Hamilton on Sunday and Wellington next Thursday.
