Former Sharks prop BJ Botha would appear to be interested in a return to South Africa, based on a renewed ambition to represent the Boks at the 2011 World Cup.
In an interview with Keo, Botha confirmed that his current contract with Irish side Ulster comes to an end in May next year and he realises that in order to feature more prominently in the Bok coach’s plans, he’ll need to be playing his rugby in South Africa.
No further details have emerged at this stage about exactly where Botha would play and whether any negotiations are currently underway, but I’m sure the Sharks would be his first choice, since he’s a born and bred Durban boy and still has strong links to the area. We’ll keep you posted if any further information comes to light.
Come home, BJ. We’d love to have you back in the black and white.Tweet
