Cullum-Sanders, from Redcliffe’s Premier League One team, has been named in the National Development squad for 2022.

She is now eligible for selection by Australia’s top national women’s team, the Hockeyroos, for any tournaments this year.

Selectors have still to announce the Australian Under 21 squad.

Redcliffe’s Division One men Joshua Blakey and Josh McPaul and Women’s Premier League One player Annelyse Tevant are in the Opens squads for the Australian Indoor team.

It’s a great achievement for Tevant who is still eligible for the junior squad, but has jumped straight into Opens. Jordan Bliss was named in the Emerging Indoor Squad.
