The 18-member squad picked by Black Sticks’ head coach Mark Hager comprises two others who have played more than 200 internationals - Krystal Forgesson (204 caps) and Emily Naylor (240 caps).
The black brigade also features four players - Gemma Flynn, Anita Punt, Katie Glynn and Stacey Michelsen - who all possess the experience of more than hundred internationals under their belt. It may be worth recalling that both Katie Glynn and Stacey Michelsen have been out of competitive action for much of the past 12 months with serious knee injuries.
The Black Sticks eves will leave for the Netherlands on May 18.
