Hockey: Defeats for both NZ teams

Disappointing defeats for the New Zealand men's and women's hockey teams as they ramp up preparations for the Olympics.

The Black Sticks men have been beaten 3-2 by the Netherlands in Utrecht while the women have been thrashed 5-1 by Germany at a Four Nations tournament in Monchengladbach.

The women now head to London to the Olympic village for a few days before going crossing the Channel for a match against France later this week.
