The New Zealand men's hockey team drew 2-all with Japan at Gifu two days after winning the first test 3-nil.

The Black sticks led 2-nil at half-time with goals from Phil Burrows and Samoan Jan Petersen.

New Zealand are using the five test series as part of their buildup to next month's Oceania Cup series with Australia to decide who'll qualify for the Olympics.
