England netball coach Tracey Neville savoured "a dream come true" after her team stunned hosts Australia to snatch a dramatic gold on the final day of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
It wasn't. A late contact penalty gave Housby a second attempt at goal and she slipped the ball through the net with apparent ease, securing a momentous win for England in the final second of the game to the giddy elation of the England fans in crowd.
Unbackable favourites before the match, Australia were outscored 16-13 in the final quarter as England produced their second thrilling victory in as many days after needing until the final seconds to get past Jamaica in the semi-finals. "The girls have worked so hard over the last worldwide phase".
"Bloomin heck! I actually said to them, 'can you win by a few more goals because this isn't pleasurable on the bench?'"

This was the first time since netball was introduced at the 1998 Games that the final did not feature both Australia and New Zealand.
