Steyn off the hook

Morné Steyn can play for Stade Français again after receiving a one-match ban, which he has already served, from the French National Rugby League.

The Bok flyhalf was sent off for kicking Lyon wing Mosese Ratuvou during a Top 14 match. Steyn claimed he had been reacting to an eye-gouge from the Fijian, but was suspended pending a disciplinary hearing, which saw him miss Stade's Top 14 match against Castre. That means he will be available for their European Challenge Cup match against Bucharest on Saturday. 

Ratuvou also received a one-game suspension after being cited for being overly aggressive in the match with Stade.
