Biography

One of the most versatile players in world rugby, Frans Steyn will be joined the Toyota Cheetahs on 1 July 2020 on a two-year contract.  


Attending Grey College in Bloemfontein, Steyn joined the Sharks straight after school in 2006.  After playing for Montpellier since 2016, he will be returning with his family to Bloemfontein in 2020.  


Francois Steyn played his first of 67 matches for the Springboks at the young age of 19 and become the second Springbok, following the former Cheetah, Os du Randt, to win two Rugby World Cups; once in 2007 and again in 2019.  He can play at flyhalf, centre and fullback, and made his Test debut for the Boks on the wing.
