Join us for a live blog as the Silver Ferns take on Australia from Sydney.

It is the first game of a four-game series against the world number one ranked side, with two games in Australia followed by contests in Auckland and Invercargill.

The Silver Ferns have played Australia once already this season, losing 60-55 in Melbourne, and come into this game having easily dealt to an under-strength Jamican team in last month's three-game series.
