The Hockeyroos take on Olympic rivals Great Britain in six matches in Western Australia that will go a long way towards preparing both teams for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and you can watch the complete series LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on Epicentre.tv.
Log on to see some of the biggest stars in world hockey going head-to-head, including Australia’s very own Anna Flanagan and Jodie Kenny, and the likes of Great Britain’s Alex Danson, Kate Richardson-Walsh and Crista Cullen. Hockey fans can expect to see plenty of fierce contests as players from both sides look to book their spot on the plane to Rio.
Bronze medalists at the London Olympics four years ago, the majority of Great Britain’s team won the European Championships with England in London last August, their success coming hot on the heels of GB’s first place finish at the World League Semi-Final in Valencia. In Rosario, at the World League Final in December, GB finished seventh but not before having beaten the Hockeyroos 1-0 in their pool match.
Australia’s Hockeyroos finished one place higher, sixth, in Rosario. While 2015 might not have been quite as successful for the Hockeyroos as the previous year they still claimed continental bragging rights by winning the Oceania Cup, finished third in the World League Semi-Final in Antwerp, and qualified for the 2016 Olympic Games.
