It's all part of looking for every single percentage of advantage the Diamonds can muster to retain their grip on the gold medal they won in Glasgow four years ago.

"In the position that we are at the Diamonds, we are currently No.1 in the world so we are being hunted, but we've got to make sure we find a way every time," Australia midcourter Liz Watson said.

"Performance analysis is a massive part of what we do and some of our club performance analysis are here as well having a look at what's going on.

"It's more tracking our movement on court in relation to our opponents' movement, our teammates' movement - trying to figure out a common theme. It's just another way to see how we operate as a team."

Normally the mantra in modern sport is to focus on the next game - for the Diamonds that's South Africa on Sunday week - but Alexander has flipped that on its head with the AIS camp a view to the Comm Games in three months time.
