SAC Alumni train for Rio 2016 Olympics
Ireland Men's Hockey
Well done to Gareth Watkins (2004), David Fitzgerald (2006), Stuart Loughrey (2009), Jaime Carr (2015), Alan Sothern (2007), Lee Cole (2013) and Stephen Cole (2009) who concluded their warm-weather training camp in South Africa with a 6-3 loss to world No 5 side Belgium. The game concluded a three week camp where they trained and played nine games. They played four games against Canada winning two and drawing two. They lost 3-2 against Spain, drew 3-3 against the hosts South Africa and lost 6-2 to Belgium. The trip was a key preparation for the squad as they work towards Rio.
