After two contrasting performances in their first overseas matches of the FIH Pro League that contrasted the euphoria of winning against Australia followed by the frustration of losing to China the next week.

The Black Sticks Women will be looking for a more complete performance against the highly fancied team from Argentina.

Black Sticks Women’s Coach Sean Dancer said ahead of the match 

“We are looking forward the challenge of traveling and playing Argentina. We know that playing them away is always a tough game, with their vocal crowds.The team is determined to put out a strong performance and compete with Argentina the way we know that we can”

The New Zealand Women have made several changes to the side that took on China and sees a core of young rising stars playing together for the first time on the international stage.

Holly Pearson, Katie Doar and Olivia Shannon have all had a taste of international hockey now and will be looking forward to stamping their mark on the match for the Black Sticks Women.

Keep an eye out for the hard working defensive unit the Black Sticks team possesses which is led by vastly experiences players Sam Charlton, Rose Keddell and Ella Gunson.

Don’t be surprised to see these players pushing up the field as they look to put the opposing teams defence under immense pressure.
