Cape Town - Forgotten Springbok centre Waylon Murray has received a chance to revive his career at the Sharks.

Murray, 28, played three Tests for the Springboks in 2007 but his career has taken somewhat of a dip in recent years.

He left the Sharks to join the Lions in 2010, representing the men from Johannesburg for three seasons before joining the EP Kings in 2013.

He played at the Bulls last year but is now back in Durban with the aim of featuring for the Sharks in Super Rugby.

"I was in Durban a few months ago and made contact with Sean (Everitt, backline coach of the Sharks). I was invited to come train with the Sharks," Murray told Netwerk24.

"They must have liked what they saw of me, because I was asked to extend my stay and again train with them this year. Now I'm back home on a permanent basis where everything started for me."

Everitt said Murray is looking good and has shed some weight.

"He's only 28 years old and has a few good years of rugby left in him," said Everitt.

The Sharks are scheduled to play a mixed Rovers-Collegians club side towards the end of January for their first warm-up match and a week later they play Toulon in France.

They start their Super Rugby campaign at home against the Cheetahs on February 14.
