The party’s over for Rhett Halkett. Then again, it might just be getting started.
Rhett Halkett, one of the most impactful hockey players South Africa has seen, announced that he is retiring from international hockey after 157 caps.
A veteran in the sport, Rhett has played three Hockey World Cups (2010, 2014 & 2018), 2 Commonwealth Games (2014 & 2018) and the London Olympic Games in 2012.
Rhett has also lead South Africa to four African Cup of Nations victories.
He has also played 4 seasons in the Dutch top league, the Hoofdklasse, and 5 Bundesliga seasons with Mannheimer and now Hamburg.
No doubt Rhett will leave an indelible mark on the South African team and the gam, “as among the best, most complete players at his position to ever play.”
We wish Rhett all the very best for his future endeavours.
