Montpellier lock Paul Willemse is set to be included in the France squad for their November internationals against the Springboks, Argentina and Fiji.
Pretoria-born Willemse, who played for the Bulls in 2013, moved to Grenoble in 2014 before joining Montpellier in 2015.
According to a report from French newspaper L’Equipe, France coach Jacques Brunel will include the 25-year-old in his squad after he qualified via the residency rule.
The former U20 Championship-winning Junior Bok, therefore, could be set to face the Springboks when the two nations clash on 10 November in Paris.
