The first three matches will be played on Sunday 14th, Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th May at Rosa Birch Park in Pukekohe before tests on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th May at the Gallagher Hockey Centre in Hamilton.
All games will be broadcast live along with full commentary on the Vantage Black Sticks Facebook page (www.facebook.com/nzblacksticks), and will be available to be watched on demand afterwards.
