Trans-Tasman Series women's team announced

12 October 2016

HOCKEY: The Hockeyroos teams have been announced for the trans-Tasman series and the International Festival of Hockey, both of which will take place this November.

The trans-Tasman series will see a team of 18 players travel to Auckland, New Zealand to take part in a three match test against the New Zealand Black Sticks.

The International Festival of Hockey will also see a team of 18 travel to Melbourne for a three game series against India.

The series’ will see Murphy Allendorf, Kalindi Commerford and Ashlea Fey all make their debuts for the Hockeyroos; while Audrey Smith will be the second goalkeeper for the New Zealand tour, with Jocelyn Bartram taking over for the International Festival of Hockey.

Hockeyroos Head Coach, Jason Duff said: “We have selected a talented and exciting group of athletes which is quite balanced across the field.

“To provide support for the seven Rio athletes we have nine athletes that will have an opportunity to press their claim and continue their Hockeyroos careers. We believe that the base of experience that we have will provide a good platform for Ashlea Fey, Murphy Allendorf and Kalindi Commerford who will make their Hockeyroos debuts.

“We will be looking to increase the flexibility of our playing group through this period and give further opportunity for players to impress in different roles. However, we believe the balance of the team will make us competitive.

“The selection process for these two events was very thorough, taking into account all matches at the recent Australian Hockey League, along with performances for Australia, and performances in the national development teams.”

The trans-Tasman series takes place from November 17 - 20; while the International Festival of Hockey will take place from November 23 – 30.
