Cape Town - Springbok wing Bryan Habana says he is enjoying his stint at French side Toulon and indicated that he could extend his stay at the club.

Habana's contract with the French and European champions expires in 2016 and he told French website RugbyRama that the contract could be extended for an additional season.

The 31-year-old also said he was was happy to be injury free in the last while.

"I feel good in my rugby and my body responds well. I am glad to be spared by injuries, it's been awhile since I felt this good," he said.

"I even played at centre against Stade Français (in a Top 14 match in December) and that went well for me. I put a lot of pressure on myself to do well. I want to keep contributing to the success of Toulon."

Toulon have lost their last two Top 14 matches (30-6 to Stade Francais and 16-12 to Montpellier) which leaves them third on the table, behind Stade and Clermont Auvergne.

Habana said their intensity and physicality were not where they wanted it to be and the players are eager to make amends in the coming weeks.

"There are four important games coming up, ahead of the break for the Six Nations tournament," Habana said of the encounters with Racing Metro (Top 14, this coming weekend), Ulster and Scarlets (European Champions Cup), and Bayonne (Top14).
