THE visiting Australian Country men's hockey team continued its winning streak beating Fiji under-18 invitational 10-0 yesterday at the National Hockey Centre in Laucala.

Earlier the visitors thumped the Suva men's side 14-1.

For the U18 side, the match was a good experience as they prepare for next year's Youth Olympic Games qualifiers in Vanuatu.

Fiji Hockey Federation development officer Tai Smith said the match helped players gauge their skill level and the areas to improve ahead of the qualifiers.

Meanwhile the Fiji High Performance Unit team will play a three-Test series which starts on Thursday against the visitors.

The Australian Country women's team versus the Fiji U18 girls match was in progress when this edition went to press last night.
