Toulon stars Jonny Wilkinson and Bryan Habana will be fit to face Munster in Sunday's Heineken Cup semi-final, head coach Bernard Laporte has confirmed.

Wilkinson has not played since he limped out of Toulon's quarter-final win over Leinster a fortnight ago and there were fears he could miss the rest of the season. But Laporte said the fly-half was back in training and will be assessed as the week goes on.

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

Laporte will also welcome back wing Habana, who has been out for four months with a thigh injury.

"It's been a pretty frustrating four months, it's been the longest injury break in my career," Habana said.

"I got back and played 70 minutes two weeks ago, sat out last week with a bit of tendinitis, but I'm feeling good and hopeful along with the Toulon medical staff that I'll be good to go for the weekend."
