Matfield: I'll only play for Bulls
Cape Town - Former Springbok lock Victor Matfield has confirmed that Bok 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 on Wednesday 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 on Tuesday 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 to gain game time ahead of the Boks' series against England.
But Matfield quashed those rumours, saying the only team he will play for, should he come out of retirement, is the Bulls.
"VictorMatfield tells us the only team he would consider returning to play for is the Bulls. 'My bloed is blou' (My blood is blue)," Eyewitness News Sport tweeted.
But whether Matfield - who's currently a rugby pundit on SuperSport - returns to the playing field, remains to be seen.
He said he needs to chat to his family and his employers first.
"At this stage there's no decision, it's a hard call to make," he said.
