Hockey: The in­au­gu­ral Pre­mier Hockey League gets un­der way today at the Gal­lagher Hockey Cen­tre in Hamil­ton.

The open­ing match will be played be­tween the North Tri­dents and the home­town Hau­raki Mav­er­icks, while the South­ern Alpin­ers will play the Cen­tral Fal­cons in the late game.

There is a strong Otago in­flu­ence in the South­ern Alpin­ers, which in­cludes Black Sticks cap­tain Blair Tar­rant and the coun­try’s lead­ing striker, Hugo Inglis. They both grew up in Dunedin.
