The 25-year-old, who has a Scottish-born mother, has been playing Sevens rugby for Scotland's national side since the start of the 2018/19 season. 

A centre during his time playing Currie Cup rugby for Griquas in 2017 and 2018. Steyn has found himself on the wing for the Glasgow Warriors this season. 

"I'm contracted to the sevens team, but hope to work my way into the 15-man code. My future lies in Scotland and I hope to make the best of this opportunity," Steyn told Netwerk24 at the time of his move abroad.
