JOHANNESBURG - EWN Sport understands that former Springbok lock Victor Matfield has now concluded his negotiations with the Bulls, to complete a sensational return to playing.
Matfield, who will turn 37 in May, retired after the 2011 Rugby World Cup, and has since worked as a coach at the Bulls as well as an analyst on Supersport.
It's understood he could possibly complete his return as early as tomorrow in the Bulls pre-season friendly against the Stormers in Polokwane.
Bulls High Performance Manager Xander van Rensburg told EWN Sport that Matfield has signed a deal that will also see him coach in 2016 and 2017.
"Victor signed a contract with us for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. He will be part of the Bulls squad as a player for the next two years."
