Young SA hockey team to face Austria

2014-12-30 00:00

A YOUNG, untried combination that includes 15 uncapped players will ­represent the South Africa men’s hockey team in a four-Test series against Austria at Queensmead in Durban from January 5 to 9. Although the Europeans are ranked 23rd in the world to SA’s 12th, that stat has no meaning in this context.

And perhaps of even greater importance is the 10th Africa Cup of Nations event in Ismailia, Egypt, from October 17 to 25. The hosts are sure to offer their arch continental rivals fierce competition in the race for a spot at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
