Glasgow Warriors announced the signing of Scotland 7s wing Kyle Steyn on a one-year deal ahead of the 2019/20 season. Steyn was available to play for his new club when he was not playing on the sevens circuit and made his debut in a 38-34 win over Cardiff Blues at the Arms Park five days after signing.
The wing/centre has played in six HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournaments for Scotland but forced his way into the Glasgow Warriors backline, long before his one-year deal even started.
A former student at the University of Stellenbosch, South African-born Steyn (whose mother Gillian is from Glasgow) played in the Currie Cup for the Griquas and was named as the side’s captain for their 2018 campaign before joining up with the sevens side.
He made his Scotland debut against France in 2020, coming off the bench to help secure a 28-17 home success, and followed that up with a remarkable four tries against Tonga on his first start during the 2021 Autumn Nations Series.
