Rio Olympic qualification looms large for the men's Black Sticks.

They must win the Oceania tournament in Stratford, starting on October 21 - and that, effectively, means toppling world No 1 Australia - in order to secure a spot in the field for Rio next year.

The women's Black Sticks, world ranked No 4, are already in the Olympic field, but relish any chance to tackle the second-ranked Aussies.
