Both the men's and women's hockey teams had good news on the eve of the Commonwealth Games with injured players Kayla Whitelock and Andy Hayward on the mend.

Women's Black Sticks captain Whitelock missed the side's 2-1 warm-up loss to Australia after team-mate Gemma Flynn accidentally whacked her on the elbow with a hockey stick.

Men's drag-flick specialist Hayward has also spent time on the side in a moon boot and missed his side's 3-2 win over India yesterday. Both were on the turf today.

Whitelock played in the women's side's 3-1 win over Games' hosts Scotland while Hayward took a full part in training.
