Bulls thrilled to have Steyn back in Loftus kraal

Cape Town - The Blue Bulls have confirmed the return of former Springbok Morne Steyn to the franchise for the start of the 2020 Super Rugby season.

The 34-year-old has played over a 100 games for French club Stade Francais since joining them in 2013 but had to settle at fullback in recent months after the club signed Argentine Nicolas Sanchez to back up Frenchman Jules Plisson at flyhalf.

Steyn represented the Bulls in 124 games between 2008 and 2013 and is still the leading all-time points scorer for the franchise. He also represented the Springboks in 66 Tests between 2009 and 2016.

Bulls CEO Alfons Meyer believes Steyn still has much to contribute to the franchise. 

"It is great for us, he is a very experienced player who can still play at the highest levels."

Meyer was extremely happy to have Steyn return to the fold.

"We are very pleased to have him back in the Bull kraal," he concluded.
