Brummies beat Australia

IT was edge-of-your-seat viewing at Birmingham’s NIA recently as the England Netball Team took on World Champions Australia.

The end result saw the home team leave victorious with a 58-51 victory, their third win over the Australia Diamonds in a week. The England team were dominant throughout much of the game, however the expectant crowd, anticipating a whitewash, piled on the pressure. But in the end the English team gained its victory and talented Brummie players Stacey Francis and Eboni Beckford-Chambers were praised for their leadership in the defensive line.
