I’d agree with that assessment. I still feel the ferns are hanging in there at times, then suddenly are able to kick into 5th gear, need that for whole 60. As for the Diamonds, there are still formidable force they always are, but aren’t able to capitalise on their leads. In both the 1st and 3rd tests, they held substantial leads, and BOTH ended up with 1 point losses. I’d like to see the ferns finally take the con cup, but i won’t be shock if again the diamonds manage the win.
Honestly, for the SF to even have TWO wins against them in a series is an achievement in it self, they can walk away knowing at least the wins are split. To think the last two con cups, NZ only managed 1 win in the 8 matches.
