Stormers backline coach Robbie Fleck confirming that experienced winger Bryan Habana was looking "fit and strong" ahead of his potential return to action.
 
Habana picked up a knee injury against the Chiefs on March 9, but he has made a remarkable return to fitness and was passed fully fit - before the squad left the country at the weekend - for Friday's tour-opener against the Hurricanes.
 
"Bryan leads from the front on the training paddock and on the match-field. It's fantastic having him back in the mix - he's looking fit and he's looking strong," said Fleck.
 
Speaking about Habana's potential return to the Stormers starting XV, despite being out of action for over a month, Fleck added: "We'd have no qualms about starting with Bryan after his lay-off. He's a Springbok... he's one of the few players you could do that with. He's done it before and we've done it before with him."
