Bulls fly-half Morné Steyn came to the attention of the international rugby community with his nerveless last-minute penalty for South Africa to defeat the British & Irish Lions in the second Test match at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria in 2009.

Steyn's kick secured a 28-25 win for the Springboks and sealed the Test series in front of his home fans in Pretoria, where he is adored after helping the Bulls to the 2009 Super 14 title. Steyn set the Super 14 record for drop-goals when he landed four in one match against the Crusaders in the semi-final, and was a nerveless presence as his side routed the Chiefs in the final.

His form won him selection for the South Africa squad to face the touring Lions, and he made his international debut as a replacement during the first Test victory at Kings Park in Durban. His main contribution was a try-saving tackle on Lions wing Ugo Monye.

In 2008 he also helped the Blue Bulls to the final of the Currie Cup, but he was unable to secure victory as his rival for the South Africa No.10 jersey Ruan Pienaar scored a try to help the Sharks claim the famous trophy.
