Fo­cus on youth


THREE young­sters are poised to make their in­ter­na­tional de­buts when the Hock­ey­roos take on Korea in Perth to­day.

With cap­tain Madonna Blyth, Casey Sablowski and Kel­lie White all side­lined as they re­cover from in­juries, coach Adam Com­mens has called up new­com­ers Laura Bar­den, Madi­son Fitz­patrick and Stephanie Ker­shaw for the three-Test se­ries.

The games, to be played to­day, to­mor­row and Tues­day, will give the Hock­ey­roos an op­por­tu­nity to fine­tune be­fore of the Ocea­nia Cup in New Zealand in Oc­to­ber, the World League fi­nal in Ar­gentina in De­cem­ber and the Rio Olympics.
