BROOKE NEAL DECIDES THE TIME IS RIGHT TO RETIRE FROM INTERNATIONAL HOCKEY
  After playing 176 matches during a career that kicked off in 2013, Vantage Black Sticks Defender Brooke Neal has decided that the time is right to retire from international hockey. During her amazing career, Neal was part of the 2016 Rio Olympic Team that finished 4th as well as that historic Commonwealth Gold Medal-winning side that took down the hosts 4-1 in emphatic fashion. We wish Brooke all the best as she moves onto the next stage of her life and thank her for everything that she has done for the Vantage Black Sticks and Hockey in New Zealand.
