    Cape Town - Former Springbok lock Victor Matfield will make his return to the playing field for the Bulls in this year’s Super Rugby competition, a report in Saturday’s Die Burger indicates.

    The newspaper was reliably informed by three credible sources that Matfield will play for the Bulls.

    Matfield was unable to grant an interview on Friday, but confirmed that the Bulls and the Springboks will release a join press release in due course.

    Matfield, 36, retired from all forms of rugby after the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.

    He was the Bulls’ lineout coach in recent years and has trained with the team in the last while.

    He will use this year’s Super Rugby competition to try convince Bok coach Heyneke Meyer that he’s still good enough to play international rugby.

    Matfield is eyeing the 2015 World Cup in England. He will by 38 years old by then.

    HAVE YOUR SAY: Is it wise for Victor Matfield to return to the playing field? Or is he too old? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
