CULTURAL pride will be driving Toowoomba hockey talent Amber Mutch when she lines up for the Queensland Rubies indigenous team in the Singapore 6s tournament next month.

The international six-a-side tournament features 60 teams from countries including Australia, Singapore, Germany, Netherlands, England and Japan.

The Queensland Rubies became Australia's first indigenous hockey team to play internationally when they took part in last year's tournament.

They were also finalists for the Team of the Year in the International Beyond Sport Awards.

Mutch, who has previously toured Europe with the Australian Schoolgirls team, said she was looking forward to representing her indigenous heritage overseas.

"The best thing about being selected is I will be playing with girls from my own culture," the 18-year-old said.

The Rubies fly out to Singapore on February 26 before the tournament on March 2-3.
