Springbok lock Victor Matfield will join the Northampton Saints on a one-year deal at the end of this year’s Rugby World Cup.
Matfield, who at the age of 38 captained the Boks earlier this year against Australia and Argentina, will join up with the British club for a swansong to end his career after the Boks conclude their Rugby World Cup commitments.
He has been released from his coaching contract by mutual agreement by the Blue Bulls Company after requesting a release earlier this week
