There have been six changes to the side which played at the Commonwealth Games last month with Kristina Bates, Lily Brazel, Kalindi Commerford, Madison Fitzpatrick, Kathryn Slattery and Ashlee Wells coming into the team.

The Tri Nations will be used as preparation for the World Cup in July and August where they’re pooled with New Zealand, Japan and Belgium.

Captain Emily Smith and defender Jodie Kenny are set to make their 200th cap for the Hockeyroos.

“We weren’t able to get the result we wanted at the Commonwealth Games in the end and we want to give some players an opportunity to show what they can do," Hockeyroos coach Paul Gaudoin said.

“We think we can get some better knowledge and information for when we select the final group for the World Cup,” he added.

The Tri Nations will take place from May 19-27.
