Congratulations to all the teams for representing Oceania in this first ever World Cup for Hockey5s and these teams have set the path for future involvement of Oceania
Fijiian player Catherine Thaggard Fabiano’s words say it all.
“ What a great feeling to know that we have paved the way for little girls back home and in the Pacific ! “
Currently the Mens competition has started and Oceania is represented by Aus, Fiji and NZL. This event is through to the final placing stage. An exciting Round 4 saw Fiji vs NZL meet up and this resulted in a very tight conntest with NZL Men winning 6-5. A highlight for the spectators was the rousing Haka and Cibi before the event challenging both teams to a great contest and so it was !
