Steenkamp will coach the Borough forwards as well as play for a team keen to start climbing back up the Midlands Leagues.

Since starting his rugby at Borough, Nico has gained vast experience including spells at Bedford and Shelford, as well as Lions, but expressed a desire to continue playing while developing a role in coaching.

Steenkamp will join the coaching staff led by Lee Adamson and Kevin Roe.
