Just saw this on sharksworld.co.za, who saw on Racing Metro’s website that Frans Steyn rejected a contract extension in order to come back to SA. No concrete news where he’ll play his rugby, but this is fantastic news for SA rugby.
This from Racings site, translated by Google:
Francois Steyn has finally decided to go home in South Africa, probably pushed by the Federation of South African Rugby who wished to recover its strong player fetish.
The Club Racing Metro 92 president Jacky Lorenzetti and understand this decision and thank him warmly for three seasons at the club since joining in 2009. For his contribution within the team and its formidable qualities of a player, he actively participated in the revival of Racing. As he has yet shown Friday night against Castres, he will obviously be combative and efficient during the last few games, to go back as long as possible the due date of his departure. With its many renewals and new recruits, Racing Metro 92 tackles serenely next season, hoping of course be qualified for the next HCup.
