Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: Memorable Mention goes Paul Hamlin on fire from the penalty corners with two top class drag flicks. The power and pin point accuracy make this an unstoppable weapon we are glad to own.


P3 Woman: Our game was all about the twofer!! Three players got two goals each. MM goes to Tammy for her two random goals. First goals she got in was from the back line and the goalie left it as she thought it was going out and just went straight across the goal and into the far corner.  Just goes to show that he goalie should never leave the ball even if they think it is going out.  Goalie 101!!  And the second goal was a scoop over the goalies head.  Great to watch.


P3.2 Woman: P3.2 women travelled to Kapiti this week for a showdown against a couple of ex-Upper Hutt players.  Result didn't go our way but memorable mention this week to all the defensive players - there could have been a lot more goals scored than there were and particular mention to Jo Boykett who put her body on the line numerous times and to DJ for being super speedy on defensive PCs and shutting them down!


R1 Men: Memorable Mention to Tom, saving an almost certain goal, diving from one side of the gial to the other after saving another shot!


R3 Woman: Memorable Mention this week for R3W goes to Kelly Porter who ran her little legs off and scored our only goal – thanks!


R3 Men: The R3 Men’s game was a closely fought affair against YW-Petone that ended with a 4-3 win in the last 5 minutes of the game. Memorable Moment – Robert Roos (our keeper) writhing around on the ground seeing off countless attacks just short of the line. Great effort that gave us the best result.

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: Memorable Mention goes to the supporters who turned up and gave their all in the midst of a lot of goals

P3 Woman: MM goes to Nic De Haan for her awesome reverse short at goal that sent to the top right corner but just a little too wide.  Looked very spectacular. 

P3.2 Woman: Was always going to be a tough game this week playing Naenae who have come down from P2 but another great team effort - everyone worked their butts off!  Memorable Mention this week has to go to our goalie Lisa Malones .... she played out of her skin, the scoreline would have been much higher if it wasn't for her agility in the goal.  Great work Lisa, and great to see the team working well together and supporting each other.

R1 Men: Memorable Mention - Byran for clearing the ball at a PC before it reached the top of the circle

R3 Woman: Our Memorable Mention for R3W is to Donna Lammie – second ever game for us and scored a goal – brilliant!

We hope everyone is warming up after the storm. Just a reminder to the Seniors, even though we cancelled training last night -  it isn't usual that just because it's raining or cold it'll be cancelled in the future. 

As a heads up really for the season - it will ave to be REALLY bad and super cold for training to be cancelled. It is important that even though there is no offical training to still do something, fitness is everything in this game of ours ;)

Memorable Mentions

P2 Men: This week it goes to Vaughan Bayliss for continued saves that kept us in the game against Tawa

P3 Woman: Great first game of the season.  Some great team work and use of the ball.  MM goes to Ari who tore her Achilles heel in the first half.  Feel your pain Ari!

P3.2 Woman: First game of the season was always going to be interesting considering the team are up a grade from last year and pretty much half of the team is different to last year!  We also had a few players unavailable for this game, so it meant it had to be a massive team effort .... and it certainly was that so our memorable mention actually goes to the whole team!  Every single player slugged it out, sucked it up and got on with their jobs - we had people playing out of their usual positions and with people they'd never played with before - so the resulting scoreline of 1-1 was pretty good!  Lots to work on but it's all positive :)

R1 Men: Memorable Mention is Raph’s beautiful on-drive cricket shot defending a certain goal

R3 Men:The team had a 5 – 1 win over Kapiti. Its good to see some younger legs added to the side and we used our four subs to good advantage. MM: Watching young Harrison Bealing use his 37.5 inch canon from the edge of the circle. The shot was blasted shoulder height to the keeper who blocked the shot with his hand. The ball went skyward and landed back just short of the 23 metre line. Needless to say, the Kapiti keeper sustained an injury that necessitated him taking a short time off the field to ice his hand. What a bullet!

R3 Woman: Our Memorable Mention goes to Donna Lammie – first game, first time on the wing, played great – converted to hockey!!!

New Zealand hockey teams ready to open Commonwealth Games       


The New Zealand Men’s and Women’s hockey teams are all set to get underway at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, which starts on Thursday.

The Commonwealth Games will see more than 6,000 athletes and officials representing 71 Commonwealth nations and territories welcomed to the event cities of Gold Coast, Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville, all sharing in the celebration of sport, entertainment and culture.

The Men’s and Women’s hockey competitions will be played at the newly-upgraded Gold Coast Hockey Centre in Labrador.

As well as featuring some undisputed heavyweights, one of the beauties of the hockey competitions at the Commonwealth Games is the prospect of compelling match-ups between nations that rarely play each other.

In the first phase of competition, the 10 teams from each gender will be divided into two pools of five nations. With only the top two finishers securing a place in the competition semi-finals, there will be a considerable amount of pressure for the teams to start their campaigns with a victory and get crucial points on the board as early as possible.


With three current continental champions the women’s competition will be fiercely contested and difficult to predict.

In Pool A, England (FIH Hero World Ranking: 2) will be seen as favourites to win the pool but face stern challenges from Asian continental champions India (WR:10) and African champions South Africa (WR:14) as well as Malaysia (WR:22) and Wales (WR:26) - two rapidly progressing nations.

England will need to be at their best if they are to fulfil their ambition of winning a first ever Commonwealth Games gold medal after finishing runners up at the Kuala Lumpur 1998, Manchester 2002 and Glasgow 2014 events.

In Manchester England’s defeat came at the hands of India, a team that will fancy their chances of medalling at Gold Coast 2018, especially on the back of their outstanding title success at last year’s Asia Cup, which was played in Kakamigahara, Japan. Star striker Rani remains a talismanic figure for the Eves and could well inspire her team to their first podium finish at a Commonwealth Games since their silver medal at the Melbourne 2006 event.

Like India, South Africa are also continental champions, having claimed the Africa Cup for Nations last year in Egypt. Dirkie Chamberlain was a key player in that continental championship winning side and will once again again be one to watch. Although Malaysia and Wales sit further down the FIH Hero World Rankings, they both have enough quality to give their higher ranked opponents a serious run for their money at this event.

Women’s Pool B will be equally competitive, especially with fierce Oceania rivals New Zealand (WR:4) and Australia (WR: 5) in action alongside Scotland (WR:18), Canada (WR:21) and Ghana (WR:30).

The New Zealand Women are top seeded in the Pool at fourth in the world with hosts Australia one place behind. The Kiwis are spearheaded by the vastly experienced duo of captain Stacey Michelsen and Anita McLaren, who will both be competing at their third successive Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Michelsen, recently named a finalist for World Player of the Year, carries immense talent and experience having amassed 248 test caps for New Zealand while McLaren (252 caps) brings genuine firepower as the women’s all-time leading goal scorer, currently just one shy of her 100th goal. Both players will be hungry to complete their set of Commonwealth Games medals having won silver at Delhi 2010 and bronze at Glasgow 2014.

While the rankings gap between the Oceania giants and fellow Pool B competitors Scotland, Canada and Ghana is significant, they are certainly not teams to be taken lightly.

Scotland have some real talent in their ranks such as Great Britain internationals Sarah Robertson, Amy Gibson, Nicola Cochrane and Amy Costello while Canada and Ghana both performed well in their respective continental championships last year. The Canadians were beaten to a place on the podium by USA in the Pan American Cup, while Ghana finished second behind winners South Africa in the Africa Cup for Nations.


In the men’s event, Australia (WR:1) will be seen as favourites to claim a sixth successive title. Not only are they the top ranked team in the game and have the advantage of playing at home, they are also the current holders of the World Cup, Hockey World League, Oceania and Champions Trophy titles.

Australia will definitely not be given an easy ride in Pool A, with New Zealand (WR:9), Canada (WR:11), South Africa (WR:15) and Scotland (WR:23) all extremely motivated by the prospect of downing the Aussies on their own turf.

New Zealand, twice podium finishers in previous editions of the Commonwealth Games, will fancy their chances of medalling at this event, led by captain Arun Panchia.

Shea McAleese is the most experienced player in the team having played 258 tests, in what will serve as his fourth straight Commonwealth Games. The campaign will boost the 33-year-old’s career record at major tournaments to three Olympic Games, four Commonwealth Games and three World Cups.

Canada, led by experienced defender Scott Tupper are always dangerous and unpredictable while African continental champions South Africa and an improving Scotland team are also in the mix.

India (WR:6), England (WR:7), Malaysia (WR:12), Pakistan (WR:13) and Wales (WR:24) all feature in Pool B which looks extremely hard to predict.

As well as the always intriguing clash between rivals India and Pakistan, the latter of which is now coached by former India boss Roelant Oltmans, there is also the chance for Malaysia to gain a measure of revenge against an England team that thrashed them 7-2 in the semi-finals of the recent Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh.

As suggested by their rankings, Asian continental champions India and England, who eventually finished second behind Australia at the Azlan Shah event, should be the front-runners for the two available semi-final berths.

Both sides are blessed with numerous outstanding individuals, with India captain Manpreet Singh and England attacker Barry Middleton being two of numerous world class individuals contained in their respective ranks.

In recent months Malaysia have shown that on their day they are capable of beating the very best in the world, a fact proven by their impressive 2-1 victory over Olympic champions Argentina at the Azlan Shah event.

2006 Commonwealth Games silver medallists Pakistan will be boosted by the arrival of celebrated Dutchman Oltmans and could well challenge, while Wales will grab the opportunity to prove themselves against higher-ranked opponents with both hands.

The hockey competitions of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games get underway on the opening day of competition with the New Zealand Women going up against Scotland at 1:30pm (NZT) on Thursday 5th April before the New Zealand Men tackle Canada at the same time on Friday 6th April.

Both New Zealand’s opening matches will be broadcast live on TVNZ’s Duke channel.
