Project 2013 hit four past Kiwis

DOWN AND OUT: New Zealand's Simon Child receiving treatment after a nasty tumble during the match against Project 2013.

The Black Sticks Men's final warm up game in Malaysia saw them win 6-4 against the Malaysian Junior Men's team.
This game was a friendly, and not played to test match rules, but nevertheless gave the team a further chance to gel before heading to the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, tonight (NZT).
In this high goal-scoring game, five New Zealand players got the ball in the back of the goal - Phil Burrows twice, and the other four goals were scored by Nick Wilson, Hugo Inglis, Ben Collier and Blair Hilton.
New Zealand came out strong in the first half, scoring three goals and Malaysia zero. However, the second half saw Malaysia come back to score its four goals and New Zealand its final three.
