Negotiations to let Wilson, Child play India league

There's still some negotiations to be had before Hockey New Zealand will allow two of its players to compete in the new Indian league.

Strikers Nick Wilson and Simon Child were the only Black Sticks selected in the player auction, but the new league clashes with a compulsory domestic training camp in February.

Both players have been issued a 'No Objections Certificate' by HNZ, which allows them to play the entire tournament.

But there are still no guarantees Wilson and Child will be allowed to miss the national camp.

A No Objections Certificate is standard practice for anyone wishing to play overseas and HNZ and the Players Association will meet on Wednesday to negotiate.
