This latest news comes after Steyn announced his retirement from Test rugby last week.
History repeated itself earlier this year when Steyn, 37, kicked a late penalty to give South Africa a 19-16 win over the British and Irish Lions in the third Test in Cape Town and a 2-1 series triumph.
In 2009, Steyn landed a late penalty from his own half to give the Springboks an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series they also won 2-1.
