Victor Matfield

Rugby player

The Blue Bulls skipper is arguably the best line-out jumper in the world. He has been an integral cog of the Springboks team from the time he made his debut in 2001. Victor Matfield formed the mainstay of Jake White's World Cup winning team of 2007. He was also one of the five shortlisted candidates for the International Rugby Union Player of the Year after another great season in 2005. Matfield is a respected leader and has captained the national team in the absence of John Smit. He led the Bulls to a memorable Super14-title in 2007 and his return from a year in France ensured the Pretoria-based side lifted the Super14 crown again this season. � Phathisani Moyo
