Australia Seals Masters Series2 Sep 2013
An improved performance from the Kiwis wasn't enough to keep the series alive until the third test; going down 7-5.
With a few result turn arounds, New Zealand had high hopes of drawing the second test in Canberra last night, but it wasn't to be.
Wayne Seebeck and Judy Smith both turned around their 0-3 first test losses into 3-0 wins in the second test.
Once again Becky Clarke, Mark Waldin and Scott Gardiner showed their dominance winning their matches. Rod Bannister was very unlucky not to join the list of undefeated Kiwis, with a dubious stroke against him at 9-9 proving his undoing.
The players will now turn their energy to the Australian Masters Championships (individuals), before the third test is played on Friday.
