The Hockeyroos Olympic 2020 faiths suspend on the outcome of the two matches at Perth Hockey Stadium after they were defeated by New Zealand for straight qualification in the best of three Oceania Cup last month.
On paper, it should be a thriller, with World No.2 Australia holding the world No.19 side. But expert midfielder Jane Claxton said they wouldn’t be taking the Russians sloppily with very little separating international hockey teams.

The Russian games will be McMahon’s first comings for the Hockeyroos this year after undergoing knee surgery, while Stewart was a spare for the Oceania Cup and now gets her chance for these two important matches. Claxton said the team was first “heartbroken” to be defeated on goal difference to the World No.6 Kiwis but had heaped the result.
