Edinburgh coach Mike Blair has described Springbok legend Morne Steyn as a "Rolls-Royce" ahead of Saturday's United Rugby Championship clash against the Bulls.
With Johan Goosen out injured, Bulls coach Jake White has called up Steyn, who only recently returned from the Springboks' Rugby Championship campaign in Australia.
Steyn did not feature on that tour, but he kicked the winning penalty in the third Test against the British & Irish Lions in August and, at 37, is showing no signs of slowing down.
"He's a good player," Blair said, as quoted by The Scotsman.
"His main strength is his kicking game which, as we know, is an important facet of the game.
"The type of player he is, he's probably got another couple of years in him. He's a Rolls-Royce. He keeps his shirt clean, he moves the guys around the pitch. He's like the conductor – he puts the team in the right places."
Despite Steyn's call up, the Bulls are expected to hand the No 10 jersey to Chris Smith.
"I wouldn't have thought he (Steyn) will start. Chris Smith did pretty well when he came on and he's got a big boot on him as well," said Blair.
"But, yeah, not a bad call-up, is he?"
The Bulls are currently 14th on the URC log after registering their first win of the competition against Cardiff last weekend.
