Frans Steyn has just wowed rugby fans with an incredible 70 metre strike
Springbok veteran Frans Steyn has amazed rugby fans with an incredible kick attempt which almost equalled 70 metres in the Currie Cup.
The strike shows just how effective the South African still is at the ripe age of 33.
Many are talking about the possibility of the Cheetah’s player taking part in the 2023 World Cup. This would see the veteran featuring in five World Cups.
With kicking like this, we are sure he would still hold some sort of value for the men in green and gold.

Rugby fans of the Cheetahs and the Lions were raving about the kick, wish was just a few metres shy of seventy metres this weekend.
Quaint little 62m goal kick by Frans Steyn there.

Many will thank this incredible kicking feat to the altitude. In South Africa a lot of the stadiums are in high altitudes where the air is thinner.
This means that there is less resistance on the ball while it travels through the air, meaning the ball can be kicked at a far greater distance.
Steyn perfectly showed that with this incredible strike.
There aren’t many players who can do this in World Rugby.
