Racing-Metro’s Springbok utility back Frans Steynwill be fit to play the Top 14 playoff tie against Toulon on 26 May after recovering from a thigh injury, his club confirmed on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old – a World Cup winner in 2007 – has not played since 21 April because of the injury.
Centre Henry Chavancy has also been given the all clear but the Paris-based side still have injury worries ahead of the tie for a place in the semi-finals.
Flyhalf Jonathan Wisniewski (thigh), hooker Thomas Bianchin (shoulder), winger Sireli Bobo (shoulder) and lock Santiago Dellape (Achilles tendon) are still recovering.
Steyn’s return to action should also be a boost for the Springboks, who take on England in a three-Test series in June.
