Congratulations to Corey Weyer #3 who has been called into the Kookaburras team heading to Malaysia to replace defender Matt Dawson who has withdrawn with injury. Corey will join fellow Tigerstix player Dylan Wotherspoon #26 in the team.
Hockey Australian says:
“Weyer is a 21-year-old with eight caps who hails from Biggera Waters on the Gold Coast, having played for Labrador Tigerstix. He was added to the National Senior Men’s Squad for this year after debuting in November.
“Corey has had a good couple of weeks in training following the Netherlands series,” Batch said. “He’s played in Malaysia before, so he’ll be accustomed to the conditions and challenges that they bring.”
Australia will meet England, Malaysia, India, Ireland and Argentina in the Azlan Shah Cup which runs from March 3-10 with matches televised on Fox Sports. The 18-man Kookaburras team is due to depart for Malaysia on Sunday morning.
The Azlan Shah Cup will be the Kookaburras’ final tournament before the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast from April 4-15. The Kookaburras team for the Commonwealth Games will be named in mid-March after the Azlan Shah Cup.”
Make sure you catch the action on Fox Sports! All the best in Malaysia Corey!
