Bulls sent SOS to Steyn following Goosen injury

Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn is reportedly on his way to link up with the Vodacom Bulls in Scotland after Johan Goosen suffered a knee injury in the third round of the Vodacom United Rugby Championship.

Goosen, the other Springbok playmaker in the Bulls squad, suffered what appeared to be a knee ligament injury during the team’s victory over Cardiff this past Saturday.

Following the 29-19 win, Bulls head coach Jake White said that Goosen’s injury “did not look good”.

While Chris Smith proved himself an effective replacement, kicking 19 points, Netwerk24 reports that the Bulls have called up Steyn as the team does not have another out-and-out No 10 in their squad.

Steyn, the Springboks’ hero in the third Test against the British & Irish Lions, had only recently returned to South Africa following the overseas leg of the Rugby Championship.

The veteran flyhalf did not play any of the Tests against Australia and New Zealand, but is expected to link up with the Bulls as they prepare for the final match of their URC tour against Edinburgh on Friday.
