Stade coach giving Morne time

Stade Français manager Gonzalo Quesada has admitted that Mornè Steyn has not been at his best for the club but insists he is not worried about the South African's form.

The Springbok fly-half has played just five games for the Parisian club and has only started just twice since his move from the Bulls as international commitments have meant that he missed the start of the Top 14 season.

Steyn kicked three penalties and converted countryman Meyer Bosman's try in Friday's  21-6 win over Grenoble but uncharacteristically made a number of errors.

Quesada believes that the 29-year-old needs time to adapt to his new set up and team-mates.

"Steyn had a tough match. He had some timing problems," said Quesada after the Friday's victory at Stade Jean Bouin.

"He has not had a lot of time with us as the team begins to get to know each other really well.

"But it's a stage we have to go through, I 'm not worried even if he did not play at his best and he made mistakes that we have rarely seen from him at home. "
