Since making his debut in 2009 Dan has notched up numerous caps, making his Olympic debut at London 2012, and also has a silver medal from the 2010 Champions Trophy in Mönchengladbach. When Dan isn’t playing hockey he is also a very good cricketer; in 2004 he scored 104 for Oxford in the Varsity match and boasts a higher first class average (73.75) than West Indies legend Brian Lara (51.88).
