Independence concerns spark changes to Hockeyroos review panel

Three new people have been appointed to lead a review into problems with the culture in the Hockeyroos camp after players had concerns about potential conflicts of interests of those initially tasked with the job.

Hockey Australia has announced that Bruce Collins QC, AFL commissioner Gabrielle Trainor and former Matildas player and FIFA Council member Moya Dodd will take over the review on behalf of the Australian Sports Commission, from lawyer Richard Redman and Ernst & Young Partner Adam Carrel.

The Hockeyroos made headlines in December over claims about a "destructive" culture.

Collins, Dodd and Trainor have been appointed following player misgivings about Redman and Carrel’s links to staff at Hockey Australia, including chief executive Matt Favier, sources close to the playing group said.

The Australian Sports Commission has also expanded the scope of the review to include both cultural and governance issues, a spokesman said.
