Springboks veteran flyhalf Morne Steyn

Steyn retires from rugby

Steyn kicked the penalty that won the Springboks the series against the British & Irish Lions in August, but the 37-year-old has called time on his career in the green and gold after 68 tests to focus on club rugby and spending more time with his family.

At the opposite end of the spectrum is a first call-up for lock Salmaan Moerat, who has impressed with the Stormers this year, and joins Durban-based Sharks scrumhalf Grant Williams as the uncapped players in the squad.
