Springbok flank Francois Louw will make his return from injury for Bath against Montpellier on Friday.
The 29-year-old underwent neck surgery 10 weeks ago and last played for the Springboks against the All Blacks in Wellington on 13 September.
'Francois has been training for some time and it’s been a case of just making sure that everyone is happy medically,' Bath coach Toby Booth told the Bath Chronicle. 'We’ve no issues with throwing him straight in. We’re not worried. He’s been training well, and he was thrown in for the final of the European Challenge Cup last season and did very well.'
