    1971 – 3RD WORLD TOURNAMENT (KINGSTON, JAM)

    Strangely, the 3rd World Tournament in 1971, actually began in late December 1970, with some matches being played on New Year’s Eve. Australia, led by Gaye Teede (who was Gaye Walsh at the time) and coached by Wilma Shakespear eventually went on to take out their second title with a 48-42 victory over New Zealand.

    Also noteworthy was the performance of third placed England, who only went down to the Aussies by one and the Kiwis by two, giving people a taste of what they may do four years later.

    A notable absentee from the tournament was the South African team. They had finished third in 1967, but were now on the outer because of their government’s Apartheid policy. South Africa’s world cup absence would last until 1995.

    Profile of Australian captain Gaye Walsh… http://wais.org.au/other/hoc_detail.php?id=51

    Gaye Teede rates captaining the triumphant Australian team in the 1971 World Netball Championships in Jamaica as the finest hour of her long and distinguishing career. The agile centre/ wing attack played a dominant role in helping Australia to regain the world crown from New Zealand and as a result was named Western Australia’s Sportsman on the Year by the WA Sports Federation.

    She also derived great satisfaction from returning to the Australian team in 1978 after taking a seven- year’s break from netball to raise a pair of twins and discovering that her ball-handling skills and court-craft were still as good as ever. Her comeback was so convincing that she was named vice captain of the Australian team which contested the 1979 World Championship in Trinidad and finished in a three-way tie for first place.

    As Gaye Switch, she first represented WA at under-16 level in 1961 and was picked in the state senior team in 1963, the first of many occasions where she earned All-Australian selection. As a teenager she combined netball with track athletics, showing talent as a sprinter. Her natural speed and finely-tuned reflexes made her difficult to counter on a netball court. She was driving force in the state team when WA won the Australian Championships outright for the first time in Adelaide in 1969.

    A serious knee injury in 1979 World Tournament ended Gate Teede’s playing career. Since then she has continued to serve netball at state and national level as a coach and selector. She won Sports Australia awards as coach and national titles with under-21 teams in 1986 and1988. In 1999 she returned to WA to coach the Perth Orioles in the National Netball League.

    1975 – 4TH WORLD TOURNAMENT (AUCKLAND, NZ)

    The 4th World Tournament in Auckland saw the introduction of another netball legend. Norma Plummer played centre for Australia, in what was to be her only tournament as a player, before having double success as coach over 30 years later (2007, 2011).

    The entire competition was a hard fought battle between Australia, New Zealand and England. The gutsy English team really threw a spanner in the works when they defeated the Kiwis for the very first time, 39-38. That meant Australia needed only to draw with the hosts on the final day to claim the title. Incredibly, that’s exactly what happened.

    It was a classic trans-Tasman contest, full of all sorts of twists and turns, including Plummer taking a dramatic fall on the hard asphalt court. In the end, the two teams couldn’t be separated. 34-34 was the score.

    In a crazy forerunner to the events of four years later, had New Zealand managed to score just one more goal and won that final match, there would have been three joint title winners – Australia, New Zealand and England. As it was, England finished second (their best world cup result) and New Zealand third (their equal worst).
