Black Sticks need to be more game aware

7:03 am on 28 February 2009

The New Zealand men's hockey team has been hard at work this week trying to overcome what co-captain Dean Couzins described as a hugely disappointing effort in their opening two Tests against India.

The Black Sticks drew the first and lost the second in Wellington last weekend, falling off in the second half of both matches.

The New Zealanders gave the ball away too easily last weekend and Couzins says they just have to have more game awareness in this weekend's final Two tests in Auckland.
