The Hockeyroos have been forced to make three changes to the team to play at the Oceania Cup due to injuries.
Laura Barden (quad), Edwina Bone (knee) and Jordyn Holzberger (hamstring) have been ruled out, replaced in the 18-member team by Kristina Bates, Gabrielle Nance and Brooke Peris.
“It’s disappointing to lose three players however we’re confident the depth in the squad will allow us to achieve our goals at the Oceania Cup,” Hockeyroos head coach Paul Gaudoin said.
“It’s a great opportunity for Brooke to play her first game for the Hockeyroos this year.”
The Hockeyroos will depart for the Oceania Cup in Sydney on Monday.
Australia will play New Zealand and Papua New Guinea in the biennial tournament, with the final to be played on Sunday October 15.
