In a surprising turn of events it appears that Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has been forced to make an about turn and apologise to Gerrie Swart, the agent of French-based utility back Frans Steyn.

In a statement issued on Friday Steyn has confirmed his availability for the Springboks in their Test match against Wales in Cardiff next Saturday, June 5.

However, the statement also included an apology from the Bok coach to the agent, following quotes attributed to De Villiers in the media.,

This follows a meeting between De Villiers and Steyn in Johannesburg on Friday.

The meeting included convenor of Springbok selectors Peter Jooste and Gerrie Swart, Frans Steyn’s agent.

“We discussed our relationship over the past few months and certain concerns of Frans were addressed and resolved,” said De Villiers in the statement.

“Frans confirmed his loyalty and commitment to the Springboks and people of South Africa and I can’t wait to see him back in green and gold.”

Steyn’s future availability for the Springboks will be arranged with his club, Racing Metro.

The meeting also discussed statements and documentary evidence submitted to De Villiers.

He accepted the contents and apologised for any negative interpretations concerning the reputation and good name of both Steyn and Swart, brought about by quotes attributed to him in the media.

The apology was accepted.

“All parties now regard the matter as closed and will make no further comment on the subject,” the statement concluded.

This follows earlier reports that the fall-out between the Bok coach and the talented young French-based star, Steyn, was laid at the door of Steyn’s agent, Gerrie Swart.

  • @klempie (Comment 2) : Yes well he did go to Mighty Men , so it might have actually done him some good.It takes a man to apologise and I am glad the matter is resolved. Now we only need Frans back at the Sharks.

  • Well after having a full go at Frans’s pre-madonna attitude, I can now conclude with all honesty that it’s never a good idea to comment in the heat of the moment :grin:

    Glad his on board, great player, poor attitude, but all’s well until his next slip-up. Then I’ll have another full go at him, but forgiveness comes cheap if you’re able to drop them over from 65m/+. :mrgreen:
