Canterbury are counting on Australia international Craig Boyne to up the stakes in the NOW: Pensions Premier Division relegation battle. Penalty corner specialist Boyne, 26, is a new signing to go along with Mexican Francisco Montoya as the bottom club, with only one win so far, meet Hampstead & Westminster at Polo Farm on Sunday.

Alan Forsyth

Going south seems the best bet for any Scot hoping to make it to Rio 2016. So far only two, Gordon McIntyre of Beeston and Chris Grassick of Surbiton, are in the Bisham Abbey-based Team GB training squad. But Grassick’s club mate, Alan Forsyth is making a strong bid to join them in the combined Wales, England and Scotland squad this year.
