Toulon have included French centre Mathieu Bastareaud in their squad for Friday's Amlin Challenge Cup final.
Bastareaud has been absent for a month after fracturing his hand in their clash with Agen on April 14. But with Toulon chasing silverware when they take on Biarritz at The Stoop on Friday, the French centre could be thrust straight back into the action.
Forwards: Steffon Armitage, Sébastien Bruno, Kristian Chesney, Levan Chilachava, Joe El Abd, Laurent Emmanuelli, Pierrick Gunther, Carl Hayman, Davit Kubriashvili, Eifion Lewis Roberts, Jean-Charles Orioli, Christophe Samson, Dean Schofield, Jocelino Suta, Joe van Niekerk.
Backs: Mathieu Bastareaud, Fabien Cibray, Matt Giteau, Benjamin Lapeyre, Geoffroy Messina, Alexis Palisson, Luke Rooney, David Smith, Sébastien Tillous Borde, Jonny Wilkinson
