36 year old, Julian, or Boetie as he is known has announced his retirement from International Hockey.
Julian’s last appearance for South Africa was at the 2018 FIH Hockey World Cup in India in December.
Julian has been an integral member of the team. He has represented South Africa at the 2010, 2014 & 2018 Hockey World Cups, the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2012 London Olympic Games.
He was a key player in a very successful period for the men’s programme and his skills, quality and tenacity have been invaluable to the men’s team.
He has represented South Africa 129 times.
We respect Julian’s decision and we will miss him as he steps away from the international programme.
We wish him all the very best in the future.
