- Springbok legend Bryan
Habana has confirmed that he is unsure of where he stands
on his international future.
Habana has not featured for the
Boks since they were stunned by Italy in November 2016.
He was unavailable for most of
2017 with a serious knee injury, but he confirmed towards the end of last year
that he did know where he stood with then-coach Allister Coetzee.
With Coetzee now sacked, the
Springboks have a new man in charge in Rassie Erasmus.
While he was walking the red
carpet in Monaco at the Laureus
World Sports Awards on Tuesday night, Sport24 stopped
Habana to ask him about his international future.
"I don't know ... I might
have to chat to Rassie about that," Habana said.
The main aim now, though, for the
34-year-old is to get back playing for his French club Toulon.
"I'm trying to get back on
the go. I've been injured for a while now and I've been training for a few
months and I'm looking forward to getting back on the park as soon as
possible," he said.
"I haven't made a decision
about my international career."
Habana and his wife, Janine, are
expecting the birth of a baby boy in three weeks.
"I've got quite a few things
coming up," Habana said, nodding his head towards Janine.
"I'm going to be 35 in June
so I've got quite a few decisions to make.
"On a personal level it's
been a great run and, of course, the life of Bryan Habana is not going to stop
He is still undecided, but the
idea of never playing for the Boks again is definitely something that Habana
has thought about.
"We have a little one on the
way, so I might have to start thinking about settling down," he said.
"But I haven’t made a 100%
clear decision as yet."
