Bok prop handed French lifeline
- 21 Aug 2017
Gurthrö Steenkamp has joined Stade Français as a medical joker ahead of the imminent French Top 14 season.
Stade decided to sign the former Bok prop for the duration of the injury-enforced absence of his countryman and fellow Bok Heinke van der Merwe.
‘[Steenkamp] will be able to train with us on Monday and will be available for the first match of the Top 14 at home against Lyon on Saturday,’ Stade stated in a press release.
The 53-Test cap loosehead played six seasons for Toulouse, but his contract with the club expired at the end of last season.
