Welcome return: Naipolioni Nalaga

Clermont are set to welcome back a handful of key players from injury ahead of their Top 14 playoff clash with Castres.

Naipolioni Nalaga, Lee Byrne and Fritz Lee are all expected to be fit for Sunday's crucial game, according to Rugbyrama.

Nalaga is Clermont's top scorer in the league this season with eight tries to his name so far.

Byrne meanwhile is playing his final matches for the club ahead of returning to Wales with Newport Gwent Dragons.

Inspirational flanker Julien Bonnaire is still a doubt for head coach Vern Cotter, who is also leaving the club at the end of the season to coach Scotland.

Julien Bardy and Daniel Kotze have both been ruled out.
