Date published: December 21 2016

Montpellier number eight Pierre Spies is set to return to action when his side host Toulon at the Altrad Stadium on Friday.

The former Bulls and Springbok stalwart spent some time on the sidelines due to pneumonitis but according to a Rugbyrama report, he has recovered and will be available for selection for this weekend’s fixture.

Pneumonitis is inflammation of the walls of the alveoli (air sacs) in the lungs.

Meanwhile, Spies’ Montpellier team-mate, winger Benjamin Fall has been ruled out for three weeks after tearing a leg muscle.
