Wilkinson fit to face Munster

Toulon have confirmed that Jonny Wilkinson and Bryan Habana have been passed fit to face Munster in their Heineken Cup semi-final in Marseille on Sunday.

Former England international Wilkinson limped out of the quarter-final victory over Leinster with a hamstring injury, and Fred Michalak deputised at fly-half in the weekend's Top 14 win over Perpignan.

But Toulon coach Bernard Laporte has revealed that Wilkinson will be fit to start against Munster, while Habana is also ready to return in Marseille.

The South African wing was out for four months with a hamstring problem, and he made a brief comeback against Bordeaux before sitting out the Perpignan clash due to tendonitis.

"Wilkinson is ready," said Laporte. "He trained on Tuesday for I don't know how many hours, but a fair few. So it seems that all is well."

Habana is unlikely to start on Sunday, but the Springboks flyer is confident he will feature at some point for the defending champions.

"Playing a part in a Heineken Cup semi-final would be pretty special," said Habana .

"Playing against a team that I have not played against before in my career, it would definitely rank up there in some of the moments I'm definitely going to savour when I look back on my career."
