Australia continued their relentless march in defende of the Azlan Shah Cup when they hammered South Africa 7- 0 this afternoon.

it was another display of attacking hockey with superb defende as the Aussies have yet to concede a goal in the tournament.


they had defeated China 7-0 in their opening match last Friday before putting five past Canada yesterday.

South Africa were defending well and it took the world number one ranked team 30 minutes to open scoring via Trent Mitton.

and once they got their first, the goal rush began earnestly as Australia added another two by halftime, courtesy of Jamie Dywer and Nicholas Budgeon in the 34th and 35th minutes respectively.

Goals by Jamie Dywer ( 46th minute), Chris Ciriello (52nd minute), Daniel Beale ( 55th minute) and Mark Knowles (62nd minute) completed the rout.
