Matfield back in two weeks to face the Highlanders




Victor Matfield has said that he will only return after the Bulls bye next week. He said that he was nearly available to play in this weeks match but the team docotr decided that it was better for him to saty away for this week ensuring that when he returns in twoo weeks he will be 100%.

Speaking on the South African rugby TV show Boots & All, Matfield said, “It was a very close thing for this weekend”

“But the doctor just felt that with a bye next week, it made a lot more sense to rest for an extra two weeks and be 100% before I start playing again, rather than 95%.” he added.

“It also gives Gary Botha and Richard Bands the chance to recover as well, so hopefully we’ll be available for the Highlanders game and can give the team a boost.”
