Josh Simmonds and Meg Pearce (still loyal to Donny although now living in Queensland) have been selected in the Australian hockey squads.  With the Olympics (back on) just around the corner we wish Josh and Meg all the very best.

Hockey Australia announced the Kookaburras and Hockeyroos squads on 2 December.  27 players make up the Kookaburras team and 25 players make up the Hockeyroos.  National selectors may add two players to the Hockeyroos in early 2021.

The Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to commence on 23 July 2021.  Obviously, due to the world pandemic over the past 12 months, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics had to be postponed.  Hockey Australia will select the final Kookaburras and Hockeyroos teams, 16 players per side, closer to the Tokyo Olympics.
