Heading back to France: Bryan Habana

Bryan Habana will turn out for Toulon against Grenoble next weekend according to the club's owner, Mourad Boudjellal.

The South African Rugby Union confirmed earlier in the week that they had received a request from Toulon to release Habana for action on a weekend on which the Springboks do not have a fixture.

SARU refused to release their decision on the matter, stating that they would only do so after Saturday night's Test against Argentina. However, Boudjellal has not waited so long.

"Bryan will play at Grenoble and it'll be a great gift for the Grenoble treasurer," Boudjellal said. "Bryan is paid by the club, it's normal that he comes just like all the staff if he is asked."
