Both teams have a perfect record so far, and have already secured semi-final qualification, but tomorrow morning’s encounter will determine who goes through to the last four as group winners.
Price believes that the match will be one to savour.
“We know that our next game is going to be very tough. The atmosphere is going to be pretty cool. We have a lot of Aussie fans over here so it kind of feels a bit like home, and there are a lot of Kiwis here as well, so it will definitely feel a bit like a final.
“It’s really exciting; you don’t realise until you walk on to court and you hear so many voices just how many people are cheering for you. We’ve got a big fanbase over here which is really cool – there are a lot of people behind us.
“We’re looking forward to the atmosphere and to the challenge of playing New Zealand and seeing where we’re at.”
23-year-old Price, who was a flagbearer for the Australian team at the 2007 World Cup, is revelling in her maiden tournament as a player.
“It’s a dream come true (to play at a World Cup) – it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do and I’m really excited.”
