After a winning start to their Women’s FIH Pro League campaign against New Zealand Women, Netherlands Women would want to make it two in two when they meet Australia’s Hockeyroos at State Netball Hockey Centre on Saturday.

Hockeyroos are seeing their first fixture of the competition as a ‘great test.’ According to Australia Women’s Coach Paul Gaudoin, Netherlands are the best team in the world at the moment and it’s a great test for them to be facing them at the start of the competition.
