Black Sticks coach Mark Hager backed by Katie Glynn
The under-fire Black Sticks hockey coach Mark Hager is being backed by star former player Katie Glynn. Hager's the subject of a review by Hockey New Zealand after he accidentally sent an email criticising several players to the playing squad themselves. Some players have complained about his methods and the environment in the squad during his ten years at the helm. But former player Katie Glynn - the Black Sticks' second highest goal scorer of all-time - told RNZ sports reporter Clay Wilson that allegations of bullying, intimidation and scare tactics are well wide of the mark.
