Morne Steyn will be available for selection for the Vodacom Bulls’ match against Munster following the reduction of his recent suspension by a week.
Steyn was handed a three-match suspension after he was red-carded in a Vodacom United Rugby Championship match against the Sharks on 12 February.
Initially, the ban ruled him out of action against Zebre Parma a fortnight ago, this past weekend’s Currie Cup encounter with Griquas in Kimberley with the upcoming weekend’s match against Irish giants Munster set to be the final match where he would be excluded.
However, the 37-year-old pivot has successfully taken part in the World Rugby HPC Coaching Intervention process, where he underwent a coaching session to modify his technique and behaviours.
The process was overseen by an independent expert coaching review group which subsequently reduced the ban by a week, ensuring Steyn’s availability for selection for this weekend’s match at Loftus Versfeld.
Steyn resumed training with the Bulls squad this week.
Bulls director of rugby Jake White will name his team for the clash with Munster on Friday.
The match will be played at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, kicking off at 4:05pm.
