Bulls and Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn has been linked with a move to French Top 14 club Stade Francais.

Sport24

French website, Le Rugby Nistere, has reported that Steyn met with Stade Francais’ management during the week leading up to the Boks’ Test against England at Twickenham.

According to reports, the French club has had Steyn in their sights for some time.

Steyn has fallen out of favour with Bok coach Heyneke Meyer following a series of indifferent performances.

Steyn started the Boks’ first two European tour matches (against Ireland and Scotland) on the bench, but was dropped from the match-day 23 altogether for the final Test against England.

Stade Francais are currently eighth in the Top 14 standings, a full 18 points behind leaders Toulon.

    He said in an interview recently that he is not interested playing in France or England,
    and that if he goes overseas it will be to Japan.

    Would be a good for him though, I cant see him dominationg the Bok 10 position like he did in the past.

    A faithful heroic total servant of the Boks and Bulls…

    If I were him I’d also bugger off and screw some of the so-called excuses for Bok fans from below the Vaal River…

    Hehe, but he is not going. He is staying at least till the end of his contract end of 2013. But I also reckon screw everyone if I were him.

    Quick to forget the record holder of most points in a game against All Blacks. Or most points in a season. Maybe he is past his prime, but he still has a lot to offer the young guys as a mentor,.
