Steyn targets SA return

Frans Steyn is expected to link up with a South African franchise after his contract with French club Racing Metro expires next June.

Steyn’s agent Gerrie Swart told Die Volksblad the veteran of two World Cups is considering a move back to his home country in 2012. It’s believed that the Lions were courting Steyn in early 2011, but Swart refused to confirm exactly which franchise is expected to secure the Bok centre’s services next year.

Meanwhile, Steyn is in France recovering from a shoulder injury incurred at the recent World Cup. If all goes to plan with regards to his rehabilitation, he should be back on the playing field for Racing by January.
