Cape Town - The South African women’s hockey team kick off their Argentina tour with the opening Four Nations match against Ireland in Buenos Aires on Wednesday (20:00 SA time).

Captain Marsha Marescia’s SA team will be without Western Province captain and double Olympian Kate Woods, who arrives in Argentina ahead of the final preliminary round Test match against India, which starts at 20:00 (SA time) on Saturday, as well as a number of other players who were not considered for various reasons.

Ireland are coached by South African Gene Muller, and his background will be of benefit to the Irish side but SA are nevertheless favourites to win.

SA will meet world champions Argentina at 22:30 (SA time) on Thursday.

Sunday’s classification matches sees the third-fourth place playoff at 20:00 (SA time) and the final at 22:30 (SA time) before the teams head to Parana, Argentina for the second Four Nations tournament.

SA team:

Mariette Rix, Kate Woods, Ilse Davids, Tarryn Bright, Shelley Russell, Jade Mayne, Kathleen Taylor (all Western Province);  Marsha Marescia (capt), Lisa Deetlefs, Bernie Coston (all Southern Gauteng); Sanani Mangisa, Nicolene Terblanche, Dirkie Chamberlain (all Northern Blues); Sulette Damons, Celia Evans (both North West); Liesel Dorothy (Eastern Province). Non-travelling reserve: Cindy Botha (KZN Coastal Raiders).
