Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal has reportedly contacted the Springboks about releasing Bryan Habana for Top 14 action.

Boudjellal is keen to have the winger available when his side face Grenoble on August 31, a team against whom they suffered a humiliating loss last season.

The Springboks do not have a Rugby Championship fixture scheduled for the weekend of the match and as such Boudjellal is hopeful that the South African Rugby Union will agree to letting Habana return to France for the match.

SARU are yet to comment on the matter.
