THE visiting Australian women's hockey masters over 45s side gave some gear to the Fiji Hockey Federation to help with the development of the sport among the youth.

Team manager Gretchen Gamble said they brought some gear with them while the rest was still in Australia and would come later.

Federation development officer Tai Smith received the gear on behalf of the country on Wednesday and said the gift would benefit the country.

"This not the first time they did this," she said.

"They have been giving us gear every time they visit and their last visit was two years ago.

"So this time they brought some gear with them and some more is still in Australia, which like around almost half of a shipping container, and it would come later."

Smith said the relationship between the two was really strong their motive was noble.

"She (Gamble) is my former teammate and she is always willing to assist me in my development work.

"On Wednesday, the side conducted training with the national under-18 girls team that has qualified for the Youth Olympic Games that will be held in China in August."

Smith said the gear would assist with her development work around the country.

"It is a big boost for my program in the North and will also help me build up the sport in the Western Division."

Meanwhile, the Fiji HPU women's side drew 1-all with the Australian side on Thursday.
