The Kiwi ladies have had an undefeated campaign so far, sealing their spot in tomorrow's game with a convincing 52 to 4 win against England last weekend.

Back rower Teuila Fotu-Moala says she's not expecting an easy game tomorrow.

"We know that the Jillaroos are a great side and they've got awesome talent there but we're confident in our abilities to come out on top at the end," she says. "Hopefully we pull through."

The Jillaroos have also slid into their finals spot undefeated and have had a number of wins against the New Zealand side throughout the year.

Kiwi Ferns Coach Tony Benson says losing to the Aussies has made them work harder.

"A lot of our motivation is that they white-washed us at the Nines, three games to nil. They beat us at the Anzac Test so we're going in as the underdogs," he says. "I think we've got a lot of secrets up our sleeves and I don't think we're anywhere near our best yet."

"We're going to be very difficult to beat," says Benson.

Kick-off will be at 6:45pm tomorrow at Brisbane Stadium in Australia.
