Cape Town - While Allister Coetzee insists he's happy with his current stock of centres, Frans Steyn has sent the Springbok mentor a timely reminder of his midfield skills.

Steyn, currently plying his trade with Jake White's Montpellier team in the Top 14, scored an incredible individual try in his side's 42-13 demolition of Brive on Sunday.

Steyn, cutting a slimmer figure than in recent times, received the ball after a long pass, cut inside and stepped past three opponents on his way to the tryline.

Montpellier are currently third in the Top 14 after six matches.

Steyn, 29, has played 53 Tests for the Springboks, with his last match in the Green and Gold coming against the All Blacks in Dunedin in 2012.
