Wales squads are selected from the Regional Performance Centre group and train together from next Easter ahead of the International Programmes that take place over the summer.
This summer Ben played matches for Wales in the Futures Cup and the UK School Games and Rosie played in a three match Test matches v Ulster.

Hockey Coach, Christ Marriott said ‘All four have worked tremendously hard to get this far and I have no doubt that if they continue to play and train as well as they are currently doing we will be seeing a lot more of them next summer’.
