Springbok international signs for Stade Francais

Stade Français have completed the signing of Springbok international Gurthro Steenkamp as an injury replacement for Heinke van der Merwe.

Steenkamp is no stranger to the Top 14, having plied his trade with Toulouse for six seasons before leaving earlier this year.

“He will be able to train today (Monday) and will be available for the first match of the Top 14 at home to Lyon on Saturday,” Stade Francais said in a statement.

Steenkamp has won 53 caps for the Springboks and was part of the 2007 World Cup-winning squad but has retired from international rugby.
