However, the talent of Bec Cole, Alice Kunek, Marena Whittle and Keely Froling shined as the game progressed, with the Aussies eventually winning the clash 16-10.

There were no such dramas in the second game, as Australia silenced the hometown crowd, smashing host nation Puerto Rico 21-4. An unbelievable two-point shooting display and some slick passing on the offensive end were the keys for the Aussies, as they sent a message to the competition.
