The Australian Diamonds have announced their team's for the upcoming Quad Series and Constellation Cup, as well as a full squad in preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Diamonds Head Coach Lisa Alexander said the Quad Series and Constellation Cup are critical milestones leading into the games, where all eyes are on winning gold.

"Our squad boasts versatile and flexile athletes. With the Suncorp Super Netball season commencing after the Commonwealth Games, now is the time for our athletes to get down to business in preparation for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018. All eyes are on our goal of winning the gold medal in front of a home crowd, and the Netball Quad Series and Constellation Cup are critical milestones leading into the pinnacle event."

The team isn't dissimilar to the Diamond's side that Alexander put out at the beginning of the year for the Quad Series in South Africa and England.

The one notable inclusion for Quad Series is the return of Tegan Philip after an ACL injury ruled her out of the 2016 season. Susan Pettitt will come in for Philip during the Constellation Cup.

Courtney Bruce is up for a possible debut either in the Quad Series or Constellation Cup having been included in both sides.

Emily Mannix and Kate Maloney have both been included in the Diamonds squad for the first time.
