Cape Town - Springbok wing Cheslin Kolbe has been declared fit for Saturday's Rugby World Cup final against England in Yokohama.

This was confirmed by Bok coach Rassie Erasmus at a press conference in Tokyo Bay on Tuesday, Netwerk24 reports.

Kolbe missed last weekend's 19-16 semi-final win over Wales due to an ankle injury and there were doubts over his availability for the final.

"We are lucky enough to have a full squad of all 31 players available and ready to train today," Erasmus said.

Kolbe's place in the starting team was taken by S'bu Nkosi for the Wales semi-final, and although the Sharks flyer performed adequately, one would expect Kolbe to slot back into the starting team.

Kolbe has been a standout player for the Springboks at the World Cup, impressing with his aerial skills, ball in hand, with the boot and on defence.

Erasmus will name his team on Thursday, with Saturday's final at International Stadium Yokohama scheduled for 11:00 (SA time).
