physica Jamaicans fire up Fastnet Ferns

7:15 pm on 21 November 2010

The New Zealand netballers will face the top side Jamaica in the semi-finals early tomorrow morning at the six-nation FastNet World Series in Liverpool.

The FastNet Ferns won the inaugural tournament held in Manchester last year, but this year's team has only one current Silver Fern, Grace Rasmussen.

They scraped into the finals in fourth after losing to Australia and England and drawing with Jamaica.

Captain Maree Bowden says the taller Jamaicans are very physical and the Ferns were fired up after the game .

She says they'll put everything in the re-match as they have nothing to lose.

Games are played in six-minute quarters with unlimited subsitution, double point powerplays and two point goals from outside the circle throughout.
