Here is what Sport24 readers had to say about Steyn tying the knot:

"Life is about more than rugby - and having his priorities right early in his life will probably extend his career significantly." - Frans Visser

"Yep, and he has saved a few bucks as well by not having to invite those hard drinking team mates of his." - Benn Sadie

"Without his rugby mates he saves on the booze bill." - Sean Lait

"Maybe that is exactly why he chose this date, to avoid it becoming a "Rugby Party" with players, coaches and management expecting invites! Now he can keep it to be a normal family affair!" - Louw C

"This is an opportunity for someone else to stake a claim for the jersey."
- Surf City

"Go Fransie, enjoy your day, enjoy all the blessings that go with being married!" - Edward

- HB

- Rick Cooper
