South Africa will contest the lowest ranking (15th-16th) at the men’s Under-21 hockey World Cup in Singapore.
This after drawing one and losing their last two matches, to Egypt, Malaysia and Poland. They drew 2-2 with Egypt and went down 3-1 and 5-4 to Malaysia and Poland respectively. Poland were the leaders of Pool H and South Africa were wooden-spoonists.
Poland’s victory sees them fighting it out for the ninth-10th spot against the winner of Pool G.
The South African scorers in the Poland defeat were Antony Vervoort (2) and Dalan Phillips (2).
