Hockey: Australia beat Great Britain in two-game series

Great Britain v Australia
Great Britain beat Australia 3-1 on Saturday but suffered a heavy defeat to tie their two-game series 1-1

Great Britain suffered a heavy defeat in their second Test with Australia, two days after beating the Kookaburras for the first time in 27 years.

Australia's 6-1 triumph cancels out Great Britain's 3-1 win on Saturday and ties the two-game mini-series at 1-1.

Chris Ciriello, Simon Orchard and Blake Govers put Australia 3-0 up before Chris Griffiths struck back for Bobby Crutchley's much-changed side.

Jamie Dwyer, Ciriello and Aran Zalewski completed the rout at Bisham Abbey.

Great Britain now head to Belgium on Saturday for the start of the World League semi-final,external-link which doubles as an Olympic qualifier.

Crutchley, who left out four of his most senior players, said: "Inconsistent is the best way to describe our performance."
