Biography

Inked for more than 18 hours (10 hours in one sitting), Kieran, Kizza or Govers is known for his standout trademark, his sleeve of tattoos. A combination of ideas he and his artist have generated, Govers confirms his arm is complete, however, he is not entirely done with tattoos just yet.

Hard to miss in his bright yellow ute, Govers’ car is his pride and joy. A car fanatic, he is often seen under the bonnet of his ‘baby’.

Watching his father and older brother play at local hockey fields, Govers first picked up a hockey stick at the age of four. With a flair for it, he played alongside his eldest brother Hayden in older age groups up until his selection.

Following Hayden and younger brothers Scott and Blake, Govers has his heart set on joining the police, ideally the ‘SWAT tech’ team, after hockey. He has completed a Cert II in hospitality management, and Cert III in fitness. Brother Blake is also a member of the Kookaburras’ Olympic training squad.
