The New Zealand women's hockey team have finished the World Cup in style, thrashing China 4-0 to finish fifth in the Netherlands.

The win in the fifth-place playoff means the Black Sticks finish with three wins, two losses and a draw at the tournament.

China had beaten New Zealand in two games in Hawke's Bay earlier this year.
