Hockeyroos downed by Great Britain

World no. 3 Hockeyroos went down 0-1 to a fast and physical Great Britain in Bunbury on Sunday.

Despite the loss, Head Coach Adam Commens said “It was a better performance in terms of tiding up our defence and creating more chances today,”.

VIS athlete and Australian goalkeeper Ashlee Wells played a vital on-field role throughout the game.

In the dying stages of the match the Hockeyroos had their chance to equalise the game but unfortunately could not find the back of the net.

Other VIS members of the Australian squad included Laura Barden, Rachael Lynch, and Georgia Nanscawen.

The Hockeyroos will have their chance for redemption this week with a further four opportunities against Great Britain in Perth.

This week for the first time in almost a year I had a speaking gig, in person, face to face. In the last year I have done a number of gigs but because of Covid-19 they have all be virtual. That’s okay but it certainly isn’t the same as being face to face with your audience. To be able to gage their body language, their facial expressions, or how much you have them interested in your story is so much easier when you are in the same room and not looking at them on a screen.
