          Aussies triumph at World Champs
          Cathy Walshe – New Zealand Herald

          New world netball champions Australia had to battle every inch of the way against an inspired Silver Ferns team for an outstanding 42-38 win in the final of the world netball championship tonight. In match that could have gone either way. The Silver Ferns fought back from a seven-goal deficit to close within one goal but just couldn’t close out the Australians in a low-scoring but full-on match. The game was typified by extreme commitment and white-hot intensity, with both teams throwing everything into it, and Australia secured victory only the last two minutes.

          The Silver Ferns opened at a frenetic pace, with Jodi Te Huna netting the first goal with aplomb and goal keep Casey Williams breaking the Australians on the next pass with a brilliantly timed intercept in the circle. The Australians broke right away, only to see the Silver Ferns net the next three goals for a narrow lead. But once the Australian midcourt starting working the ball around, the amount of possession finding the shooters was hard to stem.

          Sharelle McMahon had a quiet quarter, and Catherine Cox made a few uncharacteristic early misses, but it didn’t matter because there was always more ball coming through. The Silver Ferns, guilty of slow starts in early pool play, came out firing on all cylinders, but the Australians’ through-court defence was stifling, wing defence Selina Gilsenan in particularly spoiling form. The benefit of that came in the steady stream of possession finding its way into Cox and McMahon, who converted 13 from 17 attempts compared to Te Huna and van Dyk’s 10 from 11.

          As she did against Jamaica in last night’s semifinal, Aitken brought on Joline Henry to take over from Julie Seymour at wing defence after the first quarter. But the Australians started the second spell with the sniff of a lead, and some rugged work from circle defenders Liz Ellis and Mo’onia Gerrard broke up New Zealand’s cohesion on attack to see the lead balloon out at one stage to seven goals. The Silver Ferns dug deep and closed the margin to four goals as the second quarter neared a close, with Williams showing outstanding anticipation and quick hands to keep the pressure on Cox and McMahon.

          But the von Bertouch sisters were running riot in the Australian midcourt, Laura at wing attack in brilliant form, and three goals right on the whistle gave them a 27-20 lead at halftime. New Zealand’s problems didn’t lie in the shooting circle, however, as Te Huna and van Dyk missed only two goals from the 22 shots they put up. In contrast, Australia gloried in a wealth of possession and could afford the odd miss as they sunk 27 of their 36 attempts. Australian coach Norma Plummer benched McMahon after 30 minutes, after she sunk five from only six shots on goal and brought on the ultra-reliable Sue Pratley.

          The Silver Ferns showed the same mettle they had the previous night against Jamaica, fighting for every ball and inching their way back into the game to trail 32-35 at the three-quarter time. It was more of the same through the fourth spell, as both teams upped an already impressive defensive effort and bodies started flying. One of them was Pratley, who fell heavily contesting a rebound five minutes into the final spell and was replaced by Natalie Medhurst for the final chaotic minutes. And McMahon came back on at goal shoot with five minutes left, as Cox left the court while Langman was being treated. But the Australian machine maintained momentum and rolled on to the win.

          New Zealand captain Adine Wilson praised her team for their efforts. “We asked you to leave your guts out there and I think its all over the court….,” she said. “… We did everything we could but we couldn’t bring it home.” Victorious Australia skipper Liz Ellis said the Australians knew New Zealand were going to be a super opponent in the final. ” At no stage of the game did we feel safe. But this (Australian) team have worked incredibly hard and their heart and soul and fight (in them) is unbelievable.”

          New Zealand coach Ruth Aitken said Australia had a great game and did a good job to hold her team out. ” We came back at them, we fought and we fought but it just wasn’t to be at the end.” Australia coach Norma Plummer said she felt sick in the aftermath of the victory. She had decided to make a number of changes at different times in the game because she had the depth in the team and “that’s what we went for”.

            Australians win fighting finale
            Linda Pearce – The Age

            FOR the past four years and four months, for the first time since the early 1990s, the world netball title has resided elsewhere. Later today, after a heavy night of celebration, the trophy will return to Australia, carried proudly by a team that upstaged defending champion New Zealand 42-38 in last night’s dramatic final in Waitakere.

            It is Australia’s ninth championship from 12 attempts( and eighth outright, as the 1979 crown was shared three ways) and the celebrations reflected the fact it had been eight years since the last. The entire team, including the coaches and support staff, swore off alcohol almost two months ago with this result in sight. The first sip of victory fizz last night was the first of many.

            Another chapter was written in the rich history of a rivalry that brought a one-goal margin in the first world championships in 1963 and has so often produced results of two goals or less including in the two previous finals, with Australia’s 42-41 triumph in 1999 followed by the Ferns’ 49-47 revenge in 2003.

            Australia owes its victory to an heroic defensive effort, as its shooters again faltered under supreme pressure. For the second consecutive night its scoring percentage was inferior this time (it was just 70) but sheer weight of shots and a timely rebound by captain Liz Ellis inside the last two minutes, when New Zealand had surged back to within two goals, counted in the end.

            “What a fight,” said an emotional Ellis. “The Silver Ferns were always going to be a super opponent tonight, and they fought back and fought back, and at no stage of that game did we feel safe. The heart and the soul and the fight in this team is just unbelievable. We just kept fighting and at times it wasn’t pretty, but it was desperation. Both teams were desperate but perhaps we just had the edge.”

            New Zealand was slightly steadier in a frenetic start, leading 7-4 as Australian struggled to penetrate its attacking third and shooters Catherine Cox and Sharelle McMahon both logged two early misses. But, gradually, things settled, Cox found her range, and Australia scored nine of the next 12 goals to take a 13-10 lead at the first break.

            Joline Henry replaced Julie Seymour at wing defence, but Australia’s lead only increased, and in less than four minutes had stretched to seven. Ellis and Mo’onia Gerrard were brutally frugal in defence, keeping Jodi te Huna well covered, and increasing the pressure on Irene van Dyk, who was being worn like Ellis’s favourite party frock.

            An important steal from Laura von Bertouch, converted by Cox, when the Ferns had edged back to within four just before half-time helped Australia take a 27-20 lead to the main break. Coach Norma Plummer sensationally dragged vice-captain McMahon, replacing her with Susan Pratley after McMahon had been held to just six shots.

            But Pratley, too, struggled, and Australia lost the third quarter 12-8. New Zealand had a sniff, and when Pratley left the court after a poke in the eye a few minutes into the last quarter, Plummer made the stunning decision not to recall McMahon but to include rookie Natalie Medhurst. Minutes later, McMahon was back anyway, and it was Cox who was dragged.

            However chaotic, it was sweet retrieval for Australia, which had lost both its world and Commonwealth Games titles in the past four years. The nadir was reached on this court late in 2005, when Ellis wrecked her knee in the first quarter of a Test that delivered a record 25-goal loss to her traumatised team.

            “I just think this team has worked so hard together, they’re so united and I think they were relentless,” said Plummer, who also defended her coaching moves, including benching McMahon when Australia led by seven.

              All goals achieved
              Linda Pearce – The Age

              ON SUNDAY morning, after many celebratory drinks, two hours’ sleep and the mandatory fried breakfast at the team hotel in Auckland, Liz Ellis told her fellow world champions that she had played her last game. Most of them cried. Almost three months earlier, when Ellis confided her secret plans to her great friend Catherine Cox over lunch at a restaurant in Sydney’s Rose Bay, Cox admitted to a different emotion: anger.”

              I said, ‘No, you’re not’ and Liz said, ‘Yes, I am’ and I said, ‘No, you’re not’, and we went on like that for about five minutes and then she told me that she’d discussed it in detail with Matthew, her husband, so then I rang her husband and abused him for not trying hard enough,” Cox recalled yesterday. “And I probably would have sat there for the rest of the day and tried to make her change her mind, but nothing was going to happen. At that stage, she said she may even think about having children and that was what made me cry because I thought, ‘God, she’s serious’!”

              So she was, but Ellis also had made a pact with national coach Norma Plummer some time earlier that she would not announce any decision to quit until the world titles were over – unlike four years ago in Jamaica, when captain Kathryn Harby-Williams was one of three players who flagged their retirement intentions ahead of what also was to be coach Jill McIntosh’s swansong.

              And, for Ellis, if that meant telling a few fibs to the media, and others, then so be it. In Melbourne for the launch of the Tasman Trophy in October, she suggested she was keen to play on. On Saturday night, she said she had given no thought to anything past 9.30pm on November 17. By then, her priority was to share with her teammates what only Cox already knew.”

              I didn’t want to even hint that I was thinking about it because to win a world champs, you have to have such tunnel vision and be so focused,” Ellis said yesterday. “I’d felt bad telling Catherine but I couldn’t have kept it from her, and she kept the secret very well – even though that day was not a pleasant day.”

              She left all these dreadful messages on my husband’s voicemail – the first one was, ‘What are you doing? Why don’t you talk her out of it?’- and I was just hoping she could put it out of her head. And telling the girls on the Sunday morning was pretty difficult. I kept thinking, ‘Oh, I’ll put it off. I’ll tell ’em now. No, I’ll tell ’em later’.”

              She told them – and then promptly burst into tears – the delicate morning after the long night that had just brought her proudest achievement, and one of what history will judge as perhaps her finest, toughest and most desperate performance against New Zealand star Irene van Dyk.

              Ellis’ third world championship added to her two Commonwealth Games gold medals, four national league Most Valuable Player awards, and four premierships as captain of the Sydney Swifts, among countless other honours. She is the most capped Australian in national league (173 matches) and Test (122) history.

              Yet she has felt for much of the year that now was the time to go. Despite being in the best shape of her life, and habitually outplaying much younger and taller opponents with her spring, toughness and intelligence, her body is creaking. Amid all the tall young shooters coming through, she jokes that she is shrinking annually. And the next major event is not until 2010.

              Despite the temptation to stay on for the start of the trans-Tasman league in 2008, the fact that this year the Swifts ended the national league era by winning consecutive titles completed the first leg of Ellis’s desired double. Only the burning ambition to reclaim the world championship remained unfulfilled.”

              After the Swifts won, I thought, ‘That’ll do me’. I was 99.9% sure, then on Saturday night at the end of the game, it was just easy to say, ‘That’s enough’. On the one hand, it’s been really difficult – it’s hard to walk away from such a great team at the height of its powers – but I’m 34, things are starting to fall apart.”

              When I get up in the morning, I have to hobble around and it takes me a while to get going, so there just comes a time where you know it’s time to finish. I wanted a fairytale, and I got it, so that was good enough for me.”

              Ellis admits she briefly considered retirement in the moments after rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament in Auckland late in 2005, an injury that, at 32, cost her a place at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games. “It was tempting, but I really wanted to leave the sport on my own terms, and I wanted to leave the sport that I love playing, by playing.”

              “The highs for me that standout are obviously the three world championship wins – ’95, ’99 and this one – and I’ve said that ’99 for me was the best, but Saturday night, I think just shades that, knowing that it was my last. There is nothing I would do differently. I’d even have the knee injury because that really renewed my passion and my fight for the sport.”

              As the public face of netball, too, Ellis has been exceptional. A qualified solicitor and experienced television personality, she is articulate, witty and accessible. “Full credit to Liz, she built her own profile,” Plummer said. “Being captain of the Australian team has assisted her with that, but every time she gets up to speak, she just blows the opposition away.”

              “And on the court, it’s never say- die. Even if she’s getting beaten, my God, you know she’s going to try and turn it around, and that’s a great quality. A lot of players go missing; if somebody’s got the wood on them, they sort of fade away, but Liz never has. She’s one of the most dogged competitors I’ve ever coached.”

              Even Cox did not fully realise the extent of Ellis’ brilliant finale against the Silver Ferns until the team gathered to watch a replay on Sunday night. “Full credit to her, she had so much weight on her shoulders knowing that she was going to retire, and then she still gets up and gets the intercept to win the game,” Cox said. “She leads by example, and she’s just the most phenomenal player that’s ever been.”

              She also, probably, could be the best coach, or the best commentator, but plans to take at least 12 months to travel, reduce her golf handicap from an “embarrassing” 36, and spend time with her husband. Ellis will keep working for her gaggle of sponsors and continue with her coaching clinics, board memberships and public speaking engagements, while launching a charitable foundation. In that regard, she is more Pat Rafter than Shane Warne.

              In purely netball terms, less of Ellis will be heard. She insists she is too close to her former club and national teammates, and way too biased, to yet contemplate a career behind the microphone. She has told Cox a special-comments career is not on her radar at any stage, and Cox is confident that much broader horizons beckon, anyway.

              “Liz is so much better than just the netball commentary; I think she’ll go on to bigger and better things,” said Cox, ever the loyal sidekick. “Oh God, she’ll be running the country before we know it. No question.”

                        2011 – 13TH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS (SINGAPORE)

                        For the 13th World Championships, netball headed back to Singapore for a second time and it was another memorable tournament. In the playoff for fifth, South Africa and Malawi had another great battle, with the Proteas coming out on top this time 52-50. Then England totally dominated the Jamaicans 70-49 to claim third place.

                        But the main attraction was the final and it was another classic. Australia had lost their captain Sharelle McMahon to injury earlier in the year. Centre Nat von Bertouch took over the captaincy, and she had another great duel here with Kiwi rival Laura Langman. New Zealand started strongly and led 26-20 at half time. Irene van Dyk was on top, and at the other end, the Australians were struggling in attack.

                        This led Norma Plummer to make changes to the Diamonds, bringing goal shooter Caitlin Bassett and goal keeper Laura Geitz into the game. The changes produced immediate results with the margin reduced to just one at three-quarter time.

                        With time running out in the fourth quarter, the Ferns looked headed for victory. They were up by one and had possession. But a steal by player of the match Nat Medhurst saw Australia draw level.

                        And so we were off to extra time. Less than a year after the unbelievable commonwealth games final in Delhi, here we were again. At this stage, it seemed almost impossible to separate these two teams.

                        In extra time, the play ebbed and flowed until finally it came to Maria Tutaia who had the chance to shoot the winning goal. But her shot rimmed out. Geitz was there to pick up the scraps and send the ball down court. The ball found its way to Bassett at the other end, who calmly shot the winning goal in the final seconds, prompting another huge celebration from the Diamonds.

                        It was another incredible finish, and the two players that Plummer had brought on at half time, had played a big hand. Although she didn’t know it at the time, this would be the legendary shooter van Dyk’s fifth and last world cup, having played in two with South Africa and three with New Zealand.
