The Hockeyroos have made a clean sweep of their test series against Japan in Adelaide, defeating Japan 8-1 in the final match to take the series on Saturday.

“It’s been a really successful Test series here in Adelaide, especially on the back of the International Festival of Hockey where they got the better of us.”
