Tomorrow is a big day for our local hockey teams, as both the men's and women's Black Sticks face off against their Australian counterparts in a trans-Tasman ANZAC Day match.

Amongst the players will be 17-year-old Olivia Shannon, who signed with the women's team last year.

She may be an international level hockey star, but Shannon has to juggle that career with her NCEA school work.

She joined Daniel McHardy to preview the match and discuss her career.
