Junior off to Australia


Former Wairarapa age group representative Benedict van Woerkom has been named in the New Zealand Junior Black Sticks hockey team to compete in the Oceania World Cup qualifying tournament in Brisbane, Australia, starting on Tuesday, February 26.

His selection comes after some outstanding form for the Junior Black Sticks at an international tourney in Malaysia towards the end of last year.

Opposing New Zealand at the Oceania event will be Australia, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. Samoa were also expected to be part of the action but they have withdrawn their entry.
