The Black Sticks Men gear up for their FIH Pro League 2019 match against the Netherlands men.

Coach Darren Smith commented ahead of the tour said “This is going to be a demanding and exciting tour for the team against high quality opposition to challenge us”.

Netherlands have played 8 times since 2013. While the New Zealand Men have managed to secure three ties during this time period the Netherlands have come away winners on the 5 other occasions.

The Netherlands hold a comfortable 23 to 10 goal margin and the Blacksticks will be looking to defy history and put together a complete and comprehensive performance to stun the Netherlands Men on their home turf.

The match will see Marcus Child bring up a significant milestone in his career as he lines up to make his 150th appearance for the Vantage Black Sticks.
