Australia A’s five-match series against Malaysia commences at Perth Hockey Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

The series runs from Tuesday 24 July to Tuesday 1 August, with several Men’s Senior National Squad members included as part of the Australia A line-up.

Malaysia are currently ranked 12th in the world on the Hero Men’s FIH World Rankings.

Josh Beltz, Johan Durst, Kieran Govers, Josh Simmonds and Corey Weyer are among the Kookaburras in the squad.

Kookaburra Matthew Butturini has been added to the Australia A team after clarification on his availability and he will join the team from game three.

Butturini has 89 caps and scored 18 goals for the Kookaburras, having last represented Australia in November 2013.

The Australia A players will hope to impress the National Men’s Selectors who will name the 18-member team for the Darwin International Hockey Open in early September.

Entry is free for the general public to all of the Australia A matches.
