Lions flyhalf Butch James is set to return to play for the Sharks, which would delay his retirement until July 2013.
“Although I have not signed yet, it’s about 90% sure” he was quoted as saying. “And I would like to end things back where it all started.”
The 33-year old Butch said he would like to end his career in July 2013 and has been in discussions with the Sharks to be back-up flyhalf (to Patrick Lambie) and is keen to go back to his old franchise in Durban.
“Playing at 10 in this last Currie Cup just made me enjoy it again,” said James. “I don’t want to in six months think I should have carried on playing. I won’t be able to come back then.”
The 42-Test veteran has represented the Sharks, Bath (England) and Lions in his professional career.
