    Springbok hero Morne Steyn will join the might of Stade Francais following the 2013 Super Rugby season.

    Steyn, who has been a permant fixture in the Springbok squad, may well feel that his best days are gone with a host of talent emerging from South Africa.

    Johan Goosen has burst onto the scene and looks certain to be the new leader of the mighty Springboks.

    It will also mean that the Blue Bulls will lose their talisman in what will be hard gap to fix.

    The 28 year-old Steyn will follow in Bryan Habana's footsteps in moving to France as the Springboks endure the necessary changing of the guard.

    Steyn has scored 1,201 points for the Bulls in 106 Super matches and 486 points in 42 Tests for the 'Boks in his glittering career.
