The Australian Diamonds will probably be seeking to continue their reign as the planet’s greatest netball country if the 2019 Quad Series kicks off in England. Since the first series in 2016, the Diamonds have been crowned victors four occasions and will visit England as reigning champions after beating the Silver Ferns 60-55 past September.The 2019 edition is going to be the last global tournament before the World Cup starts in July.
HOW TO WATCH THE QUAD SERIES IN AUSTRALIA
The total Quad Series will be broadcast live and free of England around Channel Nine and NineGem, however just like all games in the United Kingdom they’ll be exhibited in the wee hours of the afternoon.
QUAD SERIES ACTS AS WORLD CUP WARM-UP
“The show is critically important for our preparation and provides us the opportunity to simulate states for the World Cup that is performed in Liverpool,” Diamonds trainer Lisa Alexander informed RSN927 at January.
“Everybody in the Australian Diamonds is liable for their own positions, regardless of that they are, for example, captain and vice versa and most likely the coach really.”
“Overall, everybody knows that the strain on them to do is enormous and we understand we’ve depth and we’ve got some fantastic young players coming through.
“You’ve got to earn the right to wear the golden dress. You do not have a Test cap through spinning and that I make that very clear.”
WHERE IS THE 2019 QUAD SERIES BEING PLAYED?
England will sponsor the initial Netball Quad collection of 2019, together with the Test matches occurring in London and Liverpool. The Series is going to be the final global competition prior to the 2019 World Cup. Since 2017 the show has happened twice a year, with the first event being played in January (matches held in England or South Africa) and again in September (matches held in Australia and New Zealand).
The Diamonds squad to its 2019 Quad collection is the exact same one that performed the past season’s Constellation Cup from New Zealand 3-1. However, Lisa Alexander’s side will comprise an excess mid-courter since the trainer explores her options prior to the 2019 Netball World Cup in July.
“We are carrying five mid-court athletes into England in January so that we could continue to research and develop our playing mixtures and game strategy as we go to the World Cup,” Alexander told Netball Australia.
“I was rather impressed with the way we played in the recent Quad Series and Constellation Cup so I am awaiting January where we will be competing on the world stage, further growing our game strategies and beginning to truly build towards our 2019 World Cup campaign.”
