Santander, Spain – South African men's hockey team manager, Martin van Staden, on Saturday confirmed that SA's last three matches will no longer be considered official Test matches and will only be considered unofficial Tests.
SA will therefore wrap up their tour of Europe and their preparations for the London Olympics with three unofficial Tests against India and Spain, with SA playing India twice, starting on Sunday.
“The games will only be friendlies and will not be FIH (International Hockey Federation) accredited,” Van Staden said.
“The rules don't change and stay exactly the same.
“There are no changes at all in terms of preparations, we will still treat these like international Test matches definitely.”
The change in status means Andrew Cronje, who was set to earn his 100th cap for SA on Sunday against India, will now only achieve the milestone against Australia later this month, in SA's first match of the Olympic Games. – Sapa
