Habana, one of Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal's showcase signings, has been sidelined since early December after sustaining a thigh muscle injury in European Cup action.

The 30-year-old, a 2007 Rugby World Cup winner with the Springboks in Paris, joined Toulon this season from Cape Town-based Western Stormers.

The 95-time capped 'Bok is one of the deadliest finishers in world rugby, and Boudjellal would love to get one of his star players back on the paddock at a crucial time, with the race on to guarantee a place in the top six for the play-offs at the end of the regular season.

Second-placed Toulon, however, will be without ex-All Black lock Ali Williams, who has a biceps injury.
