Ireland Qualify For Women's Hockey World Cup, Without Taking To The Field.

: 10/12/2017 - 17:52

Ireland's women's team qualified for next year's World Cup today, without taking the field. 

Australia's 23-nil thrashing of Papua New Guinea saw them reach the final of the Oceania Cup which is against New Zealand on Sunday. 

But as both sides are already qualified for the World Cup, the available place went to the seventh placed side from July's World League - and that was Ireland.
