Silver Ferns to face men's side in World Cup warm up tournament

The Silver Ferns will prepare for this year's Netball World Cup with a warm-up clash with an invitational men's side, as part of a quadrangular tournament.

The Ferns, a men's invitational side as well as Fiji and an All Stars side selected from the ANZ Premiership will contest the tournament at Auckland's Pulman Arena from June 26 to 29.

"The New Zealand men have often trained and played against the Silver Ferns leading into key events but they will now have the chance to showcase their skills to the whole country during this series which is exciting," New Zealand's men's netball association head David Pala'amo told Stuff.

The ANZ Premiership All Stars side will be selected over the course of the current season, named on June 2.

The Netball World Cup begin on July 12 in England.
