Cape Town - The beleaguered Springbok camp received a timely boost with the news that veteran winger, Bryan Habana, will be available for selection for Saturday's international against Italy.
Habana participated fully in training on Monday.
Flanker Uzair Cassiem also joined up with the squad in Italy and featured in Monday's training session.
Cassiem replaced Roelof Smith in the squad after the Bulls flanker tore a pectoral muscle in the leadup to the match against England.
The Springbok team to play against Italy will be named on Thursday.
