The Silver Ferns are continuing to rotate and aren't afraid to do so.
All manner of combinations have been trialled in training ahead of tonight's match against England in Wellington.
While the tried and true may appear to be the best option given the record loss at the hands of Australia on Sunday, coach Wai Taumaunu remains steadfast in growing her talent base.
She expects returning players Millie Lees and Jodi Brown to take on a greater workload over the next two games, as she tries to maintain a fresh squad for next Thursday's return match against the Diamonds.
Captain Casey Williams is showing positive signs in her ongoing management of knee and ankle problems.
Taumaunu says Williams is in high spirits as she is now getting through matches and training without pain.
"As long as that continues we're certainly looking at having her available for all of the games, but again it probably won't be all of the time on court but that will be around resting people and making sure that we have a fresh group going to next Thursday."
Taumaunu says she will continue to give Cathrine Latu starts, and expect to see more of Kayla Cullen at centre.
Still hurting from the big loss to Australia, defender Katrina Grant says the prospect of next Thursday's rematch can be difficult to keep from their minds.
"Yes and no, because it was such a tough defeat and you just want another crack at them and you want to prove that was just a bad day but it's still a week and a half away so we can't think about that, and we have been focusing on England and that's our priority at the moment."
Grant says they are desperate to get back out on court and show what they've got.
"We need to improve and we need to show the public that we are who we are - we're the Silver Ferns and we represent our country and we don't want to disappoint them like we did the other day."
Meanwhile Silver Ferns shooter Cathrine Latu will celebrate her 26th birthday with netball fans in Wellington when they take on England tonight.
She hopes the team have organised something for her.
"Hopefully, but it is game day so we do have a process to go through so it's alright, I'll deal with it. I've got a few more birthdays left I think."
The match starts at 8.20pm, preceded by the game between Australia and South Africa.
