    Cape Town - The struggling Highlanders will have star All Black centre Ma'a Nonu available for selection when they take on the Force in Perth on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 11:40 SA time.

    Nonu missed the Highlanders' winless tour to South Africa because of a knee injury, but will join his team-mates in Australia ahead of their next clash.

    Meanwhile, further good news for the 15th and bottom-placed Highlanders is that prop Bronson Murray and flyhalf Trent Renata have also recovered from their injuries and will be available for selection.

    The Highlanders lost 34-27 to the Kings and 35-18 to the Bulls in their two SA matches.

    Saturday's match could well determine who finishes with the wooden spoon in this year's tournament, with the Force only three points ahead of the Highlanders in the current standings.
