MORE than 1500 spectators have filled the stands at Kalka Shades as the Australian and New Zealand men's and women's teams went head-to-head in an explosive weekend of hockey.

The Oceania Cup resembled a mini Commonwealth Games, according to Hockey Australia president Melanie Woosnam.

The best-of-three series will see the winners qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
