    Cape Town - Springbok and Bulls flyhalf Morné Steyn does not think his international career is over after he signed a three-year deal with French club Stade Francais.

    Steyn, 28, on Monday decided to take up an offer with the French giants and will join them until June 2016, but will see out his contract with the Bulls, which expires on October 31 this year.

    However, according to Beeld website, Steyn held a meeting with Bok coach Heyneke Meyer at Loftus Versfeld on Monday, with the pivot keen to represent the Boks at the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England.

    Steyn believes playing rugby in France will take his game to another level which will stand him in good stead when he represents his country.

    "Heyneke still picks Ruan Pienaar, Francois Louw and a lot of guys who play overseas. If he still wants to pick me, then I'll be there," said Steyn.

    The 42-Test veteran says he has a few goals he still wants to achieve at international level.

    "I definitely want to play 50 (Tests) and go to the 2015 Rugby World Cup," he said.

    The Bulls take on the Blues in Auckland on Sunday in the first of their four-game Super Rugby tour of Australasia.
