Steyn to sacrifice money for SA

Cape Town - Springbok Frans Steyn is seriously considering a return to South Africa, even if it means he'll earn less money.

His agent, Gerrie Swart, told Rapport that Steyn and South Africa coach Heyneke Meyer have already had talks about Steyn's Springbok future.

"Money is not his main consideration and aim. He has set goals for his career. An important one is to win trophies. That includes the World Cup and the Super Rugby title.

"But for now Frans wants to help Racing Metro win the French Top 14.

"Frans is eager to play for the Boks - and with Heyneke Meyer having already contacted him and informed him about what is expected of him in order to be picked for the Boks in future - he is willing to earn less money in the process," said Swart.

Rapport also reported in December last year that Steyn could return to South Africa, and with Meyer reportedly keen to play him at inside centre, a return looks possible sooner rather than later.

His contract at Racing expires at the end of June.
