The Australian FAST5 Flyers are one of the strongest teams on paper this year and are out to go one better than their second placing in 2013. The new-look team has been practicing the FAST5 form of the game for months now with top shooters Karyn Bailey, Amy Wild and Kate Beveridge sure to cause all sorts of problems for any defensive pairings.

An injection of speed has been added to the midcourt with the likes of Ashleigh Brazill and Gabi Simpson and with current Australia Diamond Clare McMeniman anchoring the defensive end for Australia, the team has to be odds on favourite to make the final again in 2014.
