Springbok Star Reveals Retirement Plans
Stade Français out-half Morné Steyn is has revealed he is ready to retire at international level to make way for Patrick Lambie and Handré Pollard.
The experienced Springbok playmaker has played 66 times for his country since making his international bow in South Africa’s 2009 series triumph over the the British and Irish Lions.
But it appears the former Bulls star is now poised to retire from Test rugby, as he revealed in an interview with Midi Olympique on Tuesday.
Steyn has revealed that he is no longer able for the strains of international rugby and feels it’s time to step aside.
“I’m saying now that I won’t play for the Springboks anymore,” he explained.
“The trips, the time away, all of it has become too much. And what is more back home, Handré Pollard is back from injury. He and Pat Lambie are very talented. It’s time for them instead of me.”
