Matfield says no to Bulls job

Victor Matfield has been asked to reconsider his shock decision to turn down the position of Bulls head coach.

According to Rapport newspaper, Matfield said no to the job he applied for because of family reasons and the long-term security offered to him by SuperSport as a commentator/expert.

Bulls president Willem Strauss and new CEO Alfons Meyer have asked Matfield to reconsider, and the former Bulls and Bok lock will make a final decision on Monday or early in the week.

Matfield had been on the shortlist to replace John Mitchell as Bulls Super Rugby coach, along with Kings coach Deon Davids and Blue Bulls Currie Cup coach Pote Human.
