The black-sticks women will collide against the Hockeyroos Australia women in the next match of FIH pro-league which will take place at the Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre in Sydney. Both teams are coming into this contest on the back of a defeat in their previous encounters.
Australia women were tamed by Argentian women in a nail-biting encounter by 1-0, whereas, the blacksticks women were taken down by Argentina women in a crusading manner by 3-0.
This was the first loss for Australia women this season as they have already been in a scintillating touch after 4 wins from 7 games with 1 loss and draw. Their position on the points table currently is third as they are just behind the Netherlands and Argentina women.
The blacksticks women definitely need to pull up their socks as they have lost 4 matches now and managed only 3 wins from 7 games. They currently hold the fifth spot on the points table with a win percentage of 42.86 and 9 points against their name.
