The women's Black Sticks have been beaten 2-0 by the Netherlands in a one-off test in the build up to this weekend's Champions Trophy in London.

The world number one Dutch side proved too strong in front of their home crowd, scoring early in the match then sealing the result early in the second half.

The Black Sticks travel to London tomorrow to face the Netherlands in their opening game of the tournament on Sunday.
