WELCOME
FROM NETBALL NEW ZEALAND CEO
It’s been a challenging year for the Silver Ferns in 2018, but also one boosted by the excitement
around a new-look squad and the appointment of head coach Noeline Taurua.

The Netball Quad Series and Constellation Cup are the first part of the journey for the squad as
they look ahead toward a top performance at the Netball World Cup in Liverpool next year.

Netball New Zealand extends a warm welcome to the Australian Diamonds, England Roses and
South Africa SPAR Proteas who always provide a fantastic spectacle and fierce challenge in the
true spirit of the game.

The sport of Netball in this country continues to create positive, strong and healthy role models
at all levels from grassroots right through to on the world stage.

Legacy plays a huge role for the Silver Ferns with our young talent aspiring to wear the black
dress and be the next Maria Folau, Samantha Sinclair. Earlier generations have enjoyed the thrill
of watching the likes of Dame Lois Muir, Sandra Edge and Irene van Dyk in action.

As the Silver Ferns prepare to open a new chapter in that legacy, we look forward to all Netball
fans joining us on the journey. One person doesn’t make a team, but a nation can.

On behalf of Netball New Zealand, I would like to acknowledge the support we continue to get
from the media as well as all our partners and sponsors. We greatly appreciate all you do for our
game.

QUAD
 SERIES
NETBALL QUAD SERIES IS…
Netball Quad Series is contested between four of international Netball’s
strongest nations, the Silver Ferns, Australian Diamonds, England Roses and
South Africa’s SPAR Proteas.

ABOUT THE LOGO
Fashioned to include a majestic bird featuring the colours of SANZEA’S inaugural four nations, it is a
symbol of beauty, flight, power, strength, precision, and movement with grace and breadth (wing span),
wisdom and experience (all seeing).

Named Victorious, she takes her influence from an eagle - a recognised symbol of vision, leadership and
strength.

The association with a bird of prey of such power and dominance, beauty and grace; the sleek lines
represent Victorious’ intelligence, ability to soar and keen sight.

She is seen as a visionary who is willing to push the limits of self and team and is summoned when about
to embark on a challenge – the challenge of the Netball Quad Series.

HOW THE TROPHY IS DECIDED
All matches must play to an outright result.

Win: 2 points
Draw: 1 point*
Loss: 0 points
*only if match is unable to be completed

If teams are tied on points at the end of the Series, the winner is decided by the greater goal percentage
(calculated to two decimal places).

Goal % = total goals scored / total goals scored against x 100

If the teams are still tied, then goal difference will decide their ranking.

Goal difference = goals for – goals against (from all matches played)

After goal difference, the highest number of goals scored for will determine the winner of the Netball
Quad Series.

In the event that both teams scored an equal number of goals, the series will be declared a draw.

Full steam ahead at Netball Quad Series
In a challenging first-up assignment, the Silver Ferns will step into a new era when they meet the En-
gland Roses in their Netball Quad Series opener in Auckland on Saturday.

Appointed new coach just last week and with a new-look team, there is much anticipation surrounding
Noeline Taurua’s entry at international level and with it reviving the Silver Ferns flagging fortunes.

“We’ve got to start from somewhere and it just happens to be that our first game’s against England
which, personally, I am absolutely excited by. They’re Commonwealth Games gold medallists, so what an
amazing way to start our campaign, against the best.” Taurua said.

“This is our opportunity to put out a better performance than our last showing which was the Common-
wealth Games. We’re only as good as our last outing, so we need to perform and we need to be better
than what that was.”

An experienced England pipped favourites Australia to win their first Commonwealth Games title while
the Silver Ferns were consigned to a fourth-place finish during the tournament in April.

The hugely respected and popular Taurua has had to hit the ground running, only formally getting
together with her team for the first time earlier this week and formulating her plans for the international
season ahead.

“It’s all pretty full-on but we’re getting through it. We’re not going to save the world by Saturday but we’ll
give it a good crack.

“The time frame is very limited but we have made a start and so far, the intention has been really good.
I’m really happy with where the team is mentally and I’m very happy with the mix of players that we have.
The players are working very, very hard both on and off court so I couldn’t be happier.”

For the Netball Quad Series and the Constellation Cup to follow, Taurua’s objectives are to provide oppor-
tunities for everybody to get out on court.

“We’ve got to be able to test and assess players in real time,” she said.

“We do have a game plan for Saturday and firstly, we’ve got to get the understanding of what those
strategies are. So, we’re starting not necessarily at ground zero but we’re building a base. By the time we
play NZA on Thursday, we will have a good gauge.

“We’re also looking at our protocols, our routines and practises off-court, so making sure they’re effec-
tive and efficient.”

While the other participants in the series, England Roses, the Australian Diamonds and SPAR Proteas
also haven’t played since the Commonwealth Games, it is a slightly different scenario for the Silver Ferns
with a new coach at the helm.

“We’re still finding our way but there’s no better way than just getting in there and getting going,” Taurua
said.

“We need to get things going to see where we are realistically and determine what needs to happen the
next time we take the court.

“There are different variables when coaching at this level and it won’t be like other environments that
I’ve been in. It’s not until I take this first test that I’ll know what that’s all about but I’m looking forward to
experiencing the feeling of coaching at international level.”
CONSTELLATION
        CUP

                CONSTELLATION
                    CUP
CONSTELLATION CUP IS…
The Constellation Cup is the perpetual symbol of intense rivalry between New Zealand
and Australia, who have battled each other for Netball supremacy since 1938.

ABOUT THE TROPHY
Commissioned by the two national sporting organisations in 2010, the Constellation Cup captures the
aspirations of each nation on the Netball court.

Fashioned as a diamond encrusted, silver champagne chalice, the Cup stands for achievement, optimism
and timelessness.

The series to determine who holds the Constellation Cup is contested annually between the trans-
Tasman rivals, with three to five matches played across both countries.

The trophy was designed and manufactured by Australian Michael Wilson. The Constellation Cup is
comprised of Sterling Silver, 101 white and champagne brilliant-cut diamonds and 5000-year-old
ebonised ancient Murray River Red Gum.

The display case was designed and crafted by Vic Matthews of New Zealand and is made of Black Maire,
New Zealand’s hardest wood.

HOW THE TROPHY IS DECIDED
The Constellation Cup is a best of four series, played in October, with all matches requiring an
outright result.
If the Test Series is level with an equal number of wins to each country, the winner of the
Series will be decided by the greater goal percentage (to two decimal places).
Goal % = total goals scored / total goals scored against x 100
If the teams continue to be tied following. the calculation of goal percentage, goal difference
will be applied.
If goal difference is not able to separate the teams, the highest number of goals scored for will
be taken into account to ascertain the winner of the Constellation Cup.
