Habana is one of three South Africans in the Toulon team to face the Sharks. The others are scrumhalf Michael Claassens and flank Gerhard Vosloo.

Toulon, the European and French champions, have rested a number of first-choice players, but the match-day squad is still a nice blend of regular and fringe players.

The match will be broadcast live on DSTV (channel SS1) from 21:50 on Thursday evening.
