10:45 am on 12 October 2009

New Zealand's completed a great comeback to beat Jamaica 32-27 in the final of netball's first Fast-net tournament after finishing third in pool play, thanks to losses to England and Australia.

After their 27-17 semi-final win over Australia the Silver Ferns led the final from start to finish but were up by only one at half-time.

They made their winning break in their double point power play third quarter to go up by five with the captain Casey Williams leading a great defensive effort .

There was another perfect shooting game from Irene van Dyk, who scored 17 from 17.

The Silver Ferns play England in a one-off full length test on Friday then play two in Jamaica.

And after losing to England for the first time in 26 years Australia beat the hosts 23-18 in the playoff - they'll met again tomorrow in a one off test,
