    Bulls back 'tough' Steyn

    2012-06-26 23:01
    Cape Town - Bulls team manager Wynie Strydom says he is sure embattled Springbok flyhalf Morné Steyn will return to top form for the Bulls in Super Rugby.

    Steyn had a dreadful recent Test series against England. Despite the South Africans winning the series 2-0 many believe Steyn's poor goal-kicking cost South Africa an easy series clean-sweep. He missed 12 of 22 kicks at goal during the series while his general play was also below-par.

    But Strydom believes Steyn will make things right when the Bulls tackle the Cheetahs at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

    "Morné is very tough mentally. I am confident that he will be at his best," Strydom told Beeld.

    "He's still the same player as the young lad that first pitched up here at the Bulls. Of all the wonderful things he achieved in his career, none of it went to his head.

    "Therefore I believe with Vlokkie (Cilliers, Bulls kicking coach) in the picture again, he'll be right on the money again come Saturday."

    The Bulls will be eager to get back to winning ways after three successive losses against the Highlanders, Chiefs and Stormers.

    They are currently fifth on the overall log and second in the South African conference with 49 points.

    The clash at Loftus kicks off at 19:10 on Saturday.
