Australia has cruised into the gold medal game after thumping the hapless New Zealand 109-50, England meanwhile booked their spot with a shock win over the Canadian side 65-53.

The crowd will be behind Australia 100 per cent as they go for the gold medal and England will need to bring more than just their A game to compete against the top ranked side in the competition.

England upset the Canadian team however they will be well aware that Australia is more than just a step up in talent, with Cambage along as well as Cayla George providing the big sparks for Australia the English side will have their hands full.

England will try and use their team talent to overcome the Australians as opposed to using just one player to try and dictate the game.

If England can manage to keep their hands on the ball and keep the Australian side from scoring at will they have chance to keep the game close enough for them to snatch the upset win.

Prediction
Home crowd and overall talent disparity in this game should see Australia cruise to the gold medal and sweep the tournament results.
