Warriors snap up Steyn

12th February 2019, 02:49 by Michael Holland

Glasgow Warriors have announced the signing of Scotland Sevens winger Kyle Steyn, on a one-year contract starting next season.

25-year-old has played in six Sevens World Series events since being added as a core member of the Scottish squad this term, and Warriors coach Dave Rennie is delighted to have him on board.

"He is a big powerful man," Rennie said. "Kyle has come in and trained with us a couple of times before and we've been really impressed with him."

Steyn will not become a full-time Glasgow player until the end of the sevens season. However, he will train with the club when not on duty and is looking forward to the challenge ahead.

"It'll be good to integrate with the Warriors a bit this season," Steyn said. "I've spent some time at Scotstoun before and they're a great bunch of boys and I'm sure I'll learn a lot from all the players and coaches."

South Africa-born Steyn, who has captained the Griquas in the Currie Cup, qualifies to represent Scotland through his mother.
