The men's Black Sticks have lost 2-0 to Korea in Pukekohe.

Korea were the more dominant side throughout the 70 minutes and found the net twice in the second half, Hyun Woo Nam and Hwang Tai with the goals in the 50th and 53rd minute respectively.

"We are finding out a lot about our players during this series, we have a number of younger less experienced players and it is good to see exactly what level they are at," said Black Sticks head coach Colin Batch.

 "We had a number of one-on-one chances today that we didn't get an outcome from and we need to look at that. Korea have been very consistent and they stepped it up today, so we need to pick up our game and match that tomorrow."

The teams play again tomorrow at 3pm in match four of the six-test series.
