The best sportsmen rise above their peers for several reasons. Victor Matfield stood out above the rest because of his knowledge of the game, and his ability to interprer a game or situation and make the right decisions. You wanted him in your team when you had your back against the wall, as he was at his best when a lot was at stake. We can only imagine how difficult it must have been for coaches to prepare their players for an encounter with Victor Matfield. Many pundits and opponents regard Victor as one of the best line-out jumpers in world rugby. Those who have played with or coached Victor understand, and appreciate his genius more than others. He was rare among rugby players because of his ability to pinpoint, analyse and take advantage of the weak links in his opponents' line-outs. He spent hours studying video footage of teams to learn rheir patterns and tactics in order to find small, but often significant, clues that would give his team the advantage. Victor's leadership positively influenced the behaviour of his teammates, and always elicited their best performances. And he had a burning ambition for success. His biggest legacy at the Blue Bulls union is the way in which he set new standards for many facets of our game. But what impressed me most about Victor was his easy and consistent ability to be a complete person, player and captain.
