Victor Matfield (born 11 May 1977) is a South African rugby union player.
He has played for and captained the Springbok rugby team as well as the Blue Bulls in the Currie Cup and the Bulls franchise in Super Rugby. He is generally considered one of the best locks in the world.
In 2008 he became the first international captain to beat the All Blacks in New Zealand since Martin Johnson in 2003. Matfield initially retired after the 2011 World Cup, leaving the game as the record Springbok cap holder.
He enrolled domestically as a SuperSport (TV) presenter for the Super Rugby season. He was also part of the coaching team and served as a line-out consultant for the Blue Bulls provincial rugby team in 2013.
In 2014, Matfield returned to rugby as a player, signing a 2-year playing contract with the Bulls to keep him in the game until the end of 2015.
When the retired rugby player is not at home, he handles business as Wildswinkel CEO. The company came into effect in the beginning of 2019. Previously, he was the CEO of the then Wildswinkel Voere between 2017-2018. He is focused on expanding his business, Wildswinkel Holdings into various sectors.
