The Champions Challenge takes place at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre from 27 April to 4 May.

Prior to the SA team’s arrival in Glasgow, they will be training at the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre in England and are due to play matches against England.

The SA team fields a number of hugely experienced players, none more so than celebrated midfielder Marsha Cox, and dynamic goalkeeper, Sanani Mangisa, who returns from injury.

Phume Mbande, who stood in, while Mangisa was recovering from injury, is unlucky to miss out, after some strong performances. She is one of the three non-travelling reserves.

Jade Mayne was not considered due to injury.
