Adriaan Strauss has suggested he would consider coming out of international retirement if he was still able to ‘contribute’ to the Bok cause.
The former Bok captain formally retired from Test rugby at the end of 2016, but has rediscovered some of his best form for the Bulls this season.
According to SuperSport.com, Strauss hinted this week that he might contemplate reversing his decision if certain factors were aligned.
‘It was a big decision and I took it very seriously when I decided to retire at the end of that year. So, to come back would be just as big a decision.
‘I want to contribute any way that I can and if it is possible it is definitely something to look at, but to me it must be worth it. I must be able to contribute to SA Rugby and the team. Like I said, it wasn’t an easy decision to retire and it wouldn’t be an easy one to return, if I have the opportunity.’
