          1/4 time: Fiji 17 v Trinidad & Tobago 8

          A dominant first quarter from Fiji. Unfortunately, just way too many turnovers against T&T. Unaisi Raulini starring once again at GA for Fiji.

            1/2 time: Fiji 34 v Trinidad & Tobago 15

            Rusivakula 13/16 (81%)
            Rauluni 21/23 (91%)

            Noel 8/9 (89%)
            Cooper 7/7 (100%)

            Another dominant quarter from the Pearls. They’re really finishing this tournament strongly. Sadly, T&T has given up 23 turnovers in a half.

                    1/4 time: England 9 v New Zealand 9

                    Cardwell 6/7 (86%)
                    Housby 3/4 (75%)

                    Wilson 6/6 (100%)
                    Ekenasio 3/3 (100%)

                    Well, that 15 minutes flew by. A low scoring game. Because of the huge defensive pressure from both teams, the attack has to be methodical and cautious.

                      Great defensive pressure from both sides that quarter. I hope England put Pitman on sooner rather than later to cut through the NZ zone, Metcalf not doing much

                        Cardwell 13/17 (76%)
                        Housby 7/9 (78%)

                        They can’t be separated! Level again at 1/2 time after NZ scored the last 2 goals. So many penalties. The count is 39-33 against England at this stage

                          England always pushing the rules. Not standing out of play properly. Contacting down the court. Their defence always looking and clarifying with the umpire what they are pulled up for . I know they can do it but I find it a bit annoying! Malcolm very rough and Housby obstructing and contacting consistently.
                          Im an Aussie and really want NZ to win.

                                  3/4 time: England 32 v New Zealand 32

                                  Cardwell 18/23 (78%)
                                  Housby 14/15 (93%)

                                  Wilson 19/19 (100%)
                                  Ekenasio 13/14 (93%)

                                  This is crazy!!! These two teams just can’t be split. This time NZ managed to get a lead before England nabbed the last 2.

                                  Extra time anyone?
