Having caused the hosts heartache by beating England 47-45 in the semi-finals, New Zealand must now face holders Australia in Sunday's Netball World Cup Final for a sixth consecutive tournament.
Australia edged battling South Africa in a tense 55-53 semi-final to stay on course for a 12th crown from 15 editions of the tournament since 1963.
The quick-fire format of this year's tournament means there's little time for either finalist to bask in the glory of their semi-final wins yesterday.
Silver Ferns coach Noeline Taurua will have been thrilled by her side's comeback from 24-21 at half-time and the resilience they showed at the end to see out the match against the much fancied hosts.
Australia put in perhaps the least convincing performance of the two teams in their semi, squandering an eight-goal half-time lead as South Africa worked their way back to within one goal with four minutes remaining. The Diamonds nevertheless just about held on to reach today's gold-medal match.
Despite yesterday's fright, Australia may have the psychological edge today after narrowly beating New Zealand 50-49 in their Preliminary Stage 2 clash to top Group F earlier in the tournament.
