AUS vs BEL: After a winning start in their Women’s FIH Pro League opener against Netherlands, Australia’s Hockeyroos take on Belgium Women in the next game at State Netball Hockey Centre on Sunday. It was after almost a decade that Australia Women registered a win over Netherlands and the win would give them a lot of confidence going forward in the tournament.
Meanwhile, Belgium’s Red Panthers have a win and a loss to show after the two outings in the competition so far. They come into the fixture on the back of a 1-0 win over New Zealand and could give the hosts a good challenge.
