Diamonds have perfect record in their sights

AUSTRALIA can cap an unbeaten 2014 with victory against England in Canberra tonight in what will be the Diamonds' 400th Test.

The Aussies lost the 100th milestone match 41-40 to Jamaica in Palmerston North in 1986, but defeated New Zealand 56-35 in Melbourne in 1996 in game No.200, and accounted for England 52-40 in the 300th Test at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

As well as carrying a 13-0 winning record from all matches this year into the game, Australia is also unbeaten in its past 18 contests.

Victory tonight would see the Diamonds complete their first unbeaten international season since 2002.

Australia had no trouble beating England 55-37 in Bendigo in the opening game of the two-Test series on Sunday, with wing attack Madi Robinson continuing her outstanding form, and goal shooter Caitlin Basset (pictured) nailing a game-high 29 goals from 32 attempts.
