And if I am selected I wish to win another Olympic gold for Australia but if I am not selected I will quit the game instantly,” Dwyer said. By his own admission, India has a special place in Dwyers heart and the Australian wants to end on a high in what would be his last international tournament on the Indian soil, the ongoing HWL Final. “I have played quite a lot of hockey in India. I do really enjoy coming here. The crowds are amazing. But sadly this is the last time I would be wearing the green and gold in India but I still may come here for the Hockey India League. So I just want to make the most of the opportunity. This tournament is a good challenge against some really good teams,” he said. Talking about his plans post retirement, Dwyer says he will return to the game in another role but not immediately. “I am going to do a lot of hockey coaching. I want to give as much as possible back to the game in Australia or anywhere else. But straight after retiring I am going to take some time off as I need to spend a lot of time with my family. I need to enjoy life outside hockey. But I will definitely come back at some stage and give something back to hockey,” he signed off. PTI SSC PM PMadvertisementlast_img
