NEWS: South African lock Gerbrandt Grobler will next month make his delayed debut for Racing 92 after the completion of a two-year drugs ban.

The French Top 14 club's forwards coach Laurent Travers said Thursday that Grobler would be eligible to play again from November 8.

He could have his first run out for the club he joined in the off-season four days later in a Top 14 game at Pau.

The 24-year-old former Stormers and Western Province lock was suspended for a failed drugs test during the 2014 Currie Cup.

He has joined Racing on a three-year deal.
