South Africa international opening half Morné Steyn will leave Stade Français and return to his former Blue Bulls team in South Africa, the Super Rugby franchise announced on Tuesday. Morné Steyn, who has 66 caps with the Springboks, joined Stade Français in 2013 from the Bulls, where he played 124 games. With the Parisian club, the 34-year-old has won the Top 14 in 2015 by being the key man of the finals.

"It's great for us, it's a very experienced player who can always play at the highest level," said the Bulls on their website. "He is very familiar with the culture and passion that drives the Bulls and will have a very important input on and off the field," added the franchise. At the Bulls, Steyn will replace for the 2020 season Handré Pollard, who has committed with Montpellier.
