Steyn still available for Boks


In an article from French rugby paper Midi Olympique on January 3, Steyn was quoted as saying that he would not be representing the Springboks again in the future

"I know I will not play for the Springboks again," Steyn told Midi Olympique. 

"These trips, these absences, has become too difficult for me. Also, Handre Pollard is coming back from injury. He and Pat Lambie have the talent and it is time to give them room."

However, via a statemen from Digidust Sport Agency, Steyn said he has made no final decision regarding his international career. 

"Morne Steyn has asked us to clarify some comments made in an article published by Midi Olympique on January 3rd, 2017, titled 'Morne Steyn wishes to put an end to his international career'," said the statement.

"To date, he has made no decision regarding his international career.

"His remarks merely underlined that he is aware that South Africa has two very talented flyhalves with Handre Pollard and Pat Lambie, and that naturally, as they are both younger than him, they represent more the future of the national team than he does.

However, he keeps himself ready to serve his country and the Springboks if Allister Coetzee wishes to call him, as he has already done it 66 times in the past.

"That said, Morne wants also to mention that his current main concern is to be very performant with his club, the Stade Français Paris."
