Silver Ferns celebrate Netball World Cup win

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 22 July 2019

The Silver Ferns are world champions - beating Australia in the Netball World Cup 2019 final in Liverpool.

In a nail-biter they beat Australia by just one goal: 52-51.

Silver Fern captain Laura Langman says after being on the wrong side of the results many times, it was great to get the right result.

She says it was a total team, and country, effort.

Coach Noeline Taurua was finally recruited to the top job after a string of horror results, including not making the medal podium at the Commonwealth Games. She has been in charge of the team for under a year.

RNZ Sport reporter Ravinder Hunia is in Liverpool. She joins Corin Dann with all the post-match details.
