Montpellier - South Africa's Johan Goosen is set for a return with Montpellier after missing more than six weeks with an ankle injury, the club announced on Monday.

Goosen - who retired from the sport in 2016 before joining the Top 14 runners up this summer - was carried off the field on a stretcher in October's victory over Toulon.

But the 13-time Springbok has made a good recovery and could face league leaders Clermont on Saturday.

France internationals Louis Picamoles, Benjamin Fall and Kelian Galletier, who featured in France's embarrassing defeat to Fiji, are also available for Vern Cotter as well as Georgia pair Misha Nariashvili and Levan Chilachava.

But experienced back-rower Fulgence Ouedraogo and South African lock Jacques du Plessis will be rested after featuring in last weekend's 18-15 victory at Agen -- their first in three fixtures across all competitions.
