Overseas stints with Racing 92, Toshiba Brave Lupus and Montpellier followed.It is reasonable to expect this to be Steyn’s last professional move, but Fourie told OFM Sport that the utility back is as fired up as ever with the British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa on the horizon.‘A guy like Frans wants to play against the British & Irish Lions next year, so he is not coming back to Bloem to retire,’ Fourie told OFM Sport’s Morgan Piek. ‘He is on a mission; he wants to play in those Tests against the Lions. He will be in good shape, and he will be working hard. We are looking forward to Frans joining the squad and contributing to the success we want to achieve.‘We are really excited about having Frans Steyn at the Cheetahs. We spent quite a few months on the recruitment process and we can confirm that he has signed with us from the 1st of July for two years.‘It will be valuable for our squad to tap into his experience and use his skill set. He is versatile and can play any position in the backline, from 10 to 15. We see him as a guy who can play flyhalf or inside centre, and that is where we will use him.’Full InterviewPhoto: Dan Mullan/Getty Images ‘ GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘ Watch: I wanted to rip Jean’s head off – Jaque FourieSA Rugby MagUndo ‘ 熱門話題不要被酵素騙了!在萬寧賣的「這個」直接針對脂肪…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAaron Smith names South African as greatest World Cup scrumhalfSA Rugby MagUndoJapan-based Kiwi player: I hope to never experience this againSA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndo World Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVMaverick coach Eddie Jones has named his Test dream team made up of players he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?
