Matfield: comeback discussed with bok coach

2012-04-19 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Former Springbok lock Victor Matfield has confirmed that South African rugby coach Heyneke Meyer approached him about a possible return to rugby, but nothing is decided yet.

Media reports on Sunday indicated that Meyer is keen for Matfield to return to lead the Boks in their three-Test series against England in June.

Matfield spoke to Eyewitness News Sport about the subject yesterday afternoon. They posted the following on their Twitter page: “Victor Matfield confirms that Heyneke Meyer’s approached him about a possible return. Nothing decided yet though.”

Rumours also surfaced that Matfield was spotted in Durban talking to Sharks coach John Plumtree, which led many to believe he might be considering a move to the Sharks. He quashed those rumours, saying the only team he would play for, should he come out of retirement, was the Bulls.

But whether Matfield, who’s currently a rugby pundit on SuperSport, returns to the playing field, remains to be seen.
