Hockeyroos co-captain Georgina Morgan says the side will utilise their upcoming weekend off to fine tune ahead of their next FIH Pro League match against USA at the Sydney Olympic Park.

Australia have played three consecutive matches in Melbourne, Hobart and Perth – in front of great crowds – but will enjoy a weekend without matches, before the Sydney event.

Morgan returned from injury against Great Britain on Saturday after missing the first two weekends of action to lead the Hockeyroos for the first time since being appointed co-captain.

The Hockeyroos defeated 2016 Rio Olympics gold medallists 3-0 to sit second on the FIH Pro League standings ahead of the Spanish encounter.

“It’s awesome to be getting regular games in Australia. We don’t often get to promote the sport in Australia.I love the format,” Morgan said.

“To get the crowds we’ve been getting and the quality opponents as well, to have the top teams in the world come and showcase our sport is awesome.” she added.
