Norths product Matt Dawson will tour South Africa next month with a Kookaburras squad boosted by the return of experienced trio Mark Knowles, Aran Zalewski and Daniel Beale.

They will combine forces from July 3 for the World League semi-final series, which acts as a qualifier for the World League Final in India this December and the 2018 World Cup.

Meanwhile, the Hunter Coast Premier Hockey League resumes on Sunday and Souths welcome back NSW-squad member Ehren Hazell for a top-of-the-table clash with undefeated Gosford. University are away to The Entrance and Norths tackle Maitland. There will be no women’s round this weekend with Newcastle hosting state men’s masters.
