- Coach and captain praise pair’s contribution against England
- They came off the bench in 61-45 World Cup final victory
Stacey Marinkovich sang the praises of her shooters Sophie Garbin and Kiera Austin, who came off the bench to drive the Australian Diamonds to a 61-45 Netball World Cup final win over England.
Garbin, 26, and Austin, 25, shot at 82% and 88% respectively after being injected into the highly fraught battle for gold in Cape Town. Both provided a stern test for England’s defenders, who ultimately could do little to dim their shine.
