No wholesale changes to give players test experience says Aitken

Despite trouncing England by 39 goals last night in Auckland, New Zealand netball coach Ruth Aitken says they won't be making wholesale changes in order to give less experienced players more international play.

The Silver Ferns arrived in Dunedin this afternoon for tomorrow night's second test with Aitken predicting a much improved England effort.

Aitken doesn't want to make too many changes as she fears it may disrupt the flow through the court the side enjoyed last night.

She says ten players took the court and she made four positional changes which is a lot for her.
