Just read on twitter that he's kicked a drop goal that's could ensure the relegation of the club he's moving to next season.

Does it effect his income? You would think not. I bet he can't wait to tear up the second division comp with his sublime boot

Will make for some good natured ribbing in the changing shed.


... who was the player who had a similar incident a season or two ago? I was thinking it was another Saffer?

What a player

Nope, it seems there was a liberation clause... so he kicked them into relegation which in the same time destroyed his future contract with that club. He won't play there.

I doubt that, he would have been about 6 years old when Steyn last won a test against the ABs.

4 then.

I myself don’t remember that as I was well in a 40th birthday bash in Bangkok, so it didn’t happen.

I don't think any Bok record over the Kiwis will overshadow 57 - 0. What record does Steyn hold anyway?

Several:

World record for most points scored by a player who has scored all their team's points (31).
Most points scored against New Zealand (31) in a single test
South African record for penalties in a test (8) – beating the seven achieved twice by former fullback and now kicking coach of South Africa, Percy Montgomery.
All of the above records achieved with his 31 points scored in the Tri Nations 2009 match against the All Blacks in Durban on 1 Aug 09[6]
South African record for most points in a test against Australia.
Fastest 100 points by a Springbok (8 Test matches, 3 as replacement)[7]
Fastest 200 points by a Springbok (16 Test matches)
Fastest 300 points by a Springbok (24 Test matches)
Fastest 400 points by a Springbok (33 Test matches)
Fastest 500 points by a Springbok (43 Test matches)
Fastest 600 points by a Springbok (50 Test matches)
Fastest 700 points by a Springbok (62 Test matches)
Most drop-goals in a Super Rugby season (11).
Most points scored against the All Blacks for a Springbok (31).
Most points in a Tri Nations match (31).
Most drop goals in a Super Rugby game (4) (in the 2009 Super 14 semi-final against the Crusaders)
Most drop goals in Super Rugby (25)
Most drop goals in a Super Rugby season (11 in 2009)
Most penalties in a Super Rugby season (51 in 2010)
Most points in a Super Rugby season (263) – Beating Dan Carter's record of 221 set in 2006.
Most points by a Bulls player in Super Rugby history (1,467)
Most points by a South African and first South African to reach 1,000 points in Super Rugby (1,467)
Steyn also holds the record for most consecutive successful kicks at goal in Test play since statistics for that category were first kept in the late 1980s. He had a streak of 41 successful attempts that ended on 6 November 2010 against Ireland. The previous record was 36, held by Chris Paterson of Scotland.[8][9]

He'll probably stay in Paris (who are not yet safe from relegation, btw), because of that win.
So, not the Waterloo defeat it could have been.

Great player but lets not wank ourselves to death. He would have lost more games than he won against the All Blacks because of his style of play.
