Might as well start it off.

We've got some pretty hideous jerseys to look forward to.

Sad to say, but the NZ jerseys actually look quite nice.

I am a Stormer, but honestly don't feel we going to do anything this year. Maybe that's a good thing, because last year I actually thought we had a chance

Really looking forward to the tournament this year. Here's to hoping the Stormers don't pull a Proteas. :twisted:

Matfield to return to rugby

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.

:wtf:

Thoughts?

I think it's a mistake. Give the young guys a chance. Once you retire, stay retired, in my opinion.

I agree with you. He was doing well with the coaching thing and I am sure he could have helped out in many other forms.

He will be 38 if he ever gets to join the bokke for the next WC.......

Was wondering the same thing.

Looking forward to this, as this will be my first year competing in MyBB's superbru:D
