Victorian’s Sophie Molineux, Tayla Vlaeminck and Georgia Wareham will unfortunately miss the tournament through injury.
“Sophie Molineux unfortunately misses out due to injury; she was unlikely to be available until the backend of the tournament and with limited match time and having to complete ten days managed isolation, it was a tough call, but we weren’t prepared to take the risk.
“It’s incredibly disappointing for Tayla to miss out as well. We’re really disappointed for her after injuring her foot again and will continue to work with her as she recovers” Fleglar said.
Australia will travel to New Zealand on February 10 where players and staff will complete 10 days managed isolation, before the team begins its World Cup campaign against defending champions, England on Saturday 5 March in Hamilton.
