Euro Wrap: Morne shows his class

Former Springboks and Bulls flyhalf Morne Steyn was one of Stade Français' heroes as he played a leading role in their 23-17 Top 14 victory over Castres at Stade Jean-Bouin over the weekend.

Steyn contributed 13 points courtesy of two penalties, two conversions and a drop goal in the victory which eased the Paris-based club's relegation worries. He was joined in Stade's starting line-up by ex-Springboks, Sharks and Lions loose forward Willem Alberts and former Bok and Lions prop Heinke van der Merwe.

Former Sharks and Lions scrumhalf Rory Kockott scored a try for Castres, who also had ex-Sharks hooker Jody Jenneker and former Free State Cheetahs prop Daniel Kotze in their run-on side.

Elsewhere, Springbok and ex-Bulls centre Jan Serfontein, former Bok and Sharks scrumhalf Ruan Pienaar and another former Bulls player, lock Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg were all point-scorers for Montpellier in their 41-3 victory over Racing 92 at the Altrad Stadium.

Pienaar led the way with a 16-point haul courtesy of five conversions and two penalties while Serfontein scored a brace of tries and Janse van Rensburg also dotted down.

Springboks and former Sharks utility back Patrick Lambie slotted a penalty for Racing 92.

And at Stade Chaban-Delmas, ex-Bulls flyhalf Tian Schoeman kicked a conversion for Bordeaux-Bègles in their 26-20 defeat to Oyonnax, who had former Sharks and Southern Kings lock Steven Sykes in their run-on side.

In the Six Nations, ex-Bulls and South Africa U20 loose forward CJ Stander helped Ireland to claim a 28-8 victory over Scotland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Former Stormers centre Huw Jones started for Scotland and ex-Cheetahs prop WP Nel made an appearance off the replacements bench.

Elsewhere, former Western Province U19 fly-half Tommaso Allan kicked a conversion for Italy in their 38-14 loss to Wales at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
