The squad is not due to revealed until next week but the club have confirmed on their website the trio will be part of Heyneke Meyer's squad. Out of the three, Smith's recall is the eye-catching inclusion as he last played for South Africa in 2010.
Since then Smith has battled against injury and at one stage he announced his retirement from the sport due to his troublesome Achilles but he completed his recovery and signed for Toulon in time for the 2013-14 campaign. Smith played a key role in their double-winning feat last season and has established himself as a key member of Toulon's squad.
The training party will meet on August 4 and train until the 6th when Meyer will announce the final group for the Rugby Championship which starts on August 16 against Argentina.
