Fierce international hockey rivals clash in Narrogin

Rivalry will be fierce as old enemies the Kookaburras and the Netherlands men’s national field hockey Team clash at Narrogin in two games in early 2018.

The elite male hockey teams will play two matches at the Narrogin Hockey Stadium on January 27 and 28, 2018.

The games come on the back of the successful series between the Kookaburras and Great Britain in 2016.

The event has been made possible in part through $15,000 from the WA Government’s Country Sport Enrichment Scheme.

After the Narrogin games, there will be two follow-up games at Perth Hockey Stadium on February 1 and 3 2018.

The best-of-four competition will be part of the Kookaburras’ warm up for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

The installation of new synthetic hockey turf at the Narrogin Hockey Stadium in 2016 was made possible in part through the State Government’s Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund contribution of $146,692.
