Cape Town - The Springboks are happy with the fitness of star wing Bryan Habana as they prepare to tackle Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.

Habana has been laid low since pulling his hamstring against the All Blacks at Ellis Park last month.

He only made his return to action for French club Toulon at the weekend when he played 63 minutes in a Top 14 clash against Bordeaux.

Springbok team doctor Craig Roberts told the Wales Online website that Habana came through that game nicely and they're happy with his fitness levels.

Roberts added that there were no injury concerns in the Bok squad ahead of the Test at the Millennium Stadium (kick-off 19:30 SA time).

Coach Heyneke Meyer will name his team on Wednesday.
