Team Kenya finishes 14th overall at Commonwealth games

England stun Australia with penalty shot on the siren to win netball gold

The wave of admiration and awe that transformed perceptions of people with disabilities was one of the uplifting successes of the Commonwealth Games because there was a genuinely inclusive vibe on the Gold Coast.

The memorable phrase used by Sir Alex Ferguson, the Manchester United manager when Gary and Phil Neville won the 1999 European Cup to complete the treble in Barcelona, could easily be transported to Australia's Gold Coast after an extraordinary performance and astonishing finale.

"Whoever was responsible for making that decision should hang their head in shame", Palaszczuk said.

"Bloomin heck! I actually said to them, 'can you win by a few more goals because this isn't pleasurable on the bench?'"

For Tracey Neville, a Commonwealth bronze medallist in 1998, the victory fulfilled a long held dream.

Neville said she hoped the Commonwealth win would encourage more people to pick up the sport. Hopefully we can back this up.

England, who were playing in their first Commonwealth Games final, sneaked into the gold-medal decider at Coomera Indoor Centre when Jo Harten sank the winning goal with two seconds left in Saturday's semi-final with Jamaica.

Another 45 silvers and 46 bronzes gave them a total of 136 medals - also their second best for an overseas Games.

USA brand experience agency Jack Morton Worldwide controversially won the lucrative $33.15 million contract over three of Australia's best entertainment producers two years ago.

Tracey Neville added: "It's was a dream as a player and I'm living it as a coach though these players".

But Kiwi chef de mission Rob Waddell says it's important to look at the possibility properly.

"I just tried to keep getting points as quick as possible to finish the game, so I am very happy".

"I think every other event should be trying to do the same so they have to make the programme, they have to look at scheduling and make sure that the male events don't dominate the female events". She missed. Was it all over?

The 23-year-old Carlisle player admitted she could recall little of the critical goal.

"You can never measure the benefit of that, it's just part of who we are as New Zealanders, it's part of our national identity and something to be celebrated", he said.

Helen Housby, whose score sealed their first victory in a major final, said afterwards on Instagram: "The best day of my life".

"I don't really have any words".
