    Returning Black Stick Simon Child's cheeky plan to give him every chance during international return

    Returning men's Black Sticks veteran Simon Child's conjured up a cheeky plan to give him every chance of appearing on the scoresheet during his international return


    The 274-test striker will play against Japan this evening in what's his first outing for New Zealand since the 2016 Rio Olympics.

    Child's scored 150 goals for the Black Sticks and is hopeful he'll be able to add to his tally.


    Centre pass from Stratford's at 6:30pm.
