Two Toulon superstars have been declared ready to boost the club's push for a historic European and domestic double – starting against Munster.

Jonny Wilkinson has recovered from a hamstring problem and Bryan Habana, the Springbok wing, is desperate to make a mark on Sunday after a protracted thigh injury.

Toulon head coach Bernard Laporte said that Wilkinson was back in training a fortnight after limping out of the quarter-final win over Leinster.

Habana insisted he was raring to go after the lengthiest absence from the game he has ever endured, a thigh injury sidelining him for four months.

"We are definitely going all out on both fronts," Habana said. "If you want to create history you have got to lay everything on the line."
