You bloody beauties!
We've just got home in time to see the last few minutes of the two-goal advantage stage of extra time in the Commonwealth Games netball final at Delhi.
What a match; we listened in the car on the way hiome from Wairarapa, and we lived through the peaks and the troughs; conceding a lead, then pulling it back; getting a seven-goal advantage, then losing it again. 47-all at the end of regulation time. And at last, after around 20 minutes of extra time the Silver Ferns have triumphed to retain their Commonwelath Games title with a 66-64 victory.
The Silver Ferns are jubilant; the Australians were gallant and gracious in defeat. And it's a final gold medal for New Zealand. Now bed is beckoning!
