At the end of the round robin stage, Australia, England, Jamaica and New Zealand qualified through to the semi-finals which was played at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. The first semi-final saw New Zealand got off to a blistering start against England scoring the first ten goals in the process before Joan Bryan scored the English first goal. That start would later be the key with New Zealand defeating England by twenty goals.[4]
