"The expectation is unless something has happened in Australia, where he has been attending a wedding, then he'll be available for selection in some form at the weekend," Boyd told the Dominion Post.
"I haven't discussed with him whether he'll come off the bench or start."
Jane's return is a massive boost for a Wellington side determined to finish the season unbeaten and secure an ITM Cup home final in the process.
Jane is one of three players set to return from injury, with fellow utility back Alapati Leiua (knee) and centre Tim Bateman (hip) formally discharged from Wellington's medical ward.
Such is the side's depth that the absence of one of Wellington's finds of the season, wing Ambrose Curtis, will go largely unnoticed. The tall, athletic right wing has been called into an All Blacks Sevens training camp due to take place at Mt Maunganui.
Regardless, the match shapes as the perfect Premiership semi-final warm-up for both sides, with play set to get underway at 7.35pm.
