The Hockeyroos have finally arrived in Sydney. Over the weekend we played 2 games in Perth against Germany as a warm up to the tournament. We won the first game 2-0 and drew the second 2-2. Yesterday we landed in Sydney and we nestled right in the heart of Darling harbour but unfortunately the view is slightly dampened by the constant rain. This morning we trained out at Homebush in the wet and all got a bit of a feel for the turf we will be playing on for the next 10 days. Cronky and I got to try out our new special edition Aussie pads and kickers. Very exciting. You’ll have to watch fox sports 2 to check them out. The feel in the team is great and we are all very excited about the first game on Saturday. Oh and make sure you keep your tv’s on the Sunrise program tomorrow (Thur 9th) as they will be crossing to our training throughout the program.
