According to the Sharks website, Frans Steyn has signed a 3-year contract with the side, effective 1 July 2012.
Steyn, who was rumoured to be in talks with the Sharks as far back as March this year, has now signed on the dotted line after the Sharks and SA Rugby managed to thrash out a 3-way agreement with the player.
His official contract start date of 1 July means that Steyn will be available to the Sharks for their last two regular season Super Rugby matches this season, against the Bulls and Cheetahs at Kings Park. However, he will be unlikely to qualify to play in any knock-out games, should the Sharks progress to the finals series.
Welcome back, Fransie! Let’s hope that the next 3 years are happy and successful ones, both for you and the team.Tweet
