Veteran Springbok flyhalf Morne Steyn is on his way to join the Bulls for their last match of their four-game United Rugby Championship tour of Europe.

The seasoned No 10 will replace the injured Johan Goosen, who is on his way back to South Africa after sustaining a knee injury in the Bulls’ win over Cardiff Rugby last weekend.

Steyn, who was recently on national duty during the Rugby Championship and British & Irish Lions tour, will be a boost for the Bulls, who face Scottish giants, Edinburgh Rugby this weekend.

“Morne Steyn is on his way to Wales where he will join the team as we prepare for our final tour match against Edinburgh,” confirmed Bulls director of rugby, Jake White, on Tuesday.

“Johan Goosen will be on his way home for scans to determine the extent of his knee injury. We wish Johan well for his recovery.”

The Bulls will travel to Scotland later this week, where they will take on Edinburgh Rugby on Saturday. The match will kick-off at 6.15pm.
