Ackerman is known for his physical approach to the game. In 2007, Johan Ackermann became the oldest Springbok to play for the national side, at the age of 37. After the 2007 world cup in France, he was recalled to the Springbok squard to play against the Barbarians. This was his last outing as an international player.
Ackermann bowed out of professional rugby on a winning note on 1 March 2008, when the Sharks defeated the Bulls 29-15 at Loftus Versfeld. He became the oldest player ever in Super Rugby history at age 37 years, 272 days.
