New Zealand U21 Women Claim Rare Series Win Over Australia


We should’ve seen it coming.

Whenever Estelle Macadre is involved success usually follows, although she’ll tell you it was a total team effort and when it comes to beating Australia that’s what it takes.

On Sunday the New Zealand U21 Women edged Australia 2 1 in the deciding game of the Trans Tasman series in Hawkes Bay. It’s not often New Zealand age group sides beat our rivals so the weekend will be one to remember for all involved.

Estelle said she enjoyed being in the New Zealand set up and absorbing all the learnings that come from being in a performance environment. What made the experience even more special was the fact that she had family and friends in Hawkes Bay to share the experience with.

It’s also a great reminder for us and our MX athletes of how lucky we are to have Estelle in our set up.

Congratulations to Estelle and the rest of the New Zealand side on the series win, exciting times ahead for the New Zealand women!
