Springbok wing Bryan Habana has been placed on standby for Team South Africa at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Springbok wing Bryan Habana has been placed on standby for Team South Africa at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The announcement was made by the South African Sports and Olympic Committee on Tuesday.

Habana's availability followed a decision by his French club, Toulon, in agreement with the French Rugby Federation (FFR), to make an exception and allow Habana to play during a rest window - during which all French Top 14 players are normally prohibited from playing.

The release came after the deadline for the submission of squads for the Commonwealth Games.

As a result the leading scorer in Springbok history is unable to join the team preparing in Glasgow.

However, he has been cleared to be placed on the Team SA Sevens standby list.

His availability means that should there be an injury in the Team SA, Habana would be allowed to compete, should he be required by the coaches.

He was named in the original squad.  

The Sevens squad plays three matches on Saturday - against Trinidad & Tobago, the Cook Islands and Kenya, before the knock-out matches and medal games on Sunday.
