The New Zealand women's hockey team will play one-off Tests against Korea and Japan in Auckland next month as part of their build-up to the Hawke's Bay Cup in Hastings.
The two games combine for an Easter weekend double-header with the Black Sticks up against Korea on Saturday the 4th April and then Japan the following day.
Both Tests will be played at the Auckland Grammar Hockey Turf at 3pm.
Following the weekend the Black Sticks hit the road for two further Tests in Gisborne on Tuesday the 7th and Wednesday the 8th of April against world number three Argentina.
With a new turf recently laid, it will be the first time an international Test has been played in the region.
The Auckland and Gisborne Tests are part of the Black Sticks' preparations for the Hawke's Bay Festival of Hockey, which runs from 11-19 April with eight of the world's top women's sides battling it out for the title.
