The Aussies get ready for #AUSvNZ

The past 3rd of July the Australian Team Presentation Night took place at the Mordialloc Sports Hotel. It was the official team presentation night where all players from all divisions where announced by head coach Stephen Hoey.

The event, supported by both sponsors AZEMAD and JOST, was a good gathering of most of the players that will wear the Green & Gold during the Trans-Tasman Test Series against New Zealand on the 1st and 2nd of August.

Here is what Head Coach and Chairman of Roller Hockey Australia, Stephen Hoey had to say:

All the players here tonight have gained their right to wear the Golden jersey. Not forgetting that with it,comes a great responsability. New Zealand beat us last year over there. Against us they are always a very strong opponent, but we are up for the challenge.

And speaking about hockey growth in Asia-Pacific:

We are astonished to see that the sport is growing so well in the region. Today we are able to have a 5 division competition at international level. We just want to keep working together with New Zealand and helping each other to mantain this growth and have more and better competitions each year.
