Wing expects to be fit for final
Craig Wing
Australia's Craig Wing insists he will be fit for Saturday's Tri-Nations final against New Zealand, despite suffering with a sternum injury.

The utility player is named in a 19-man squad which is unchanged from the one selected before the 26-14 victory over Great Britain in Hull last weekend.

Wing said: "I'm all sorted now. I've got a chest guard for it and it's getting better and better."

Scott Prince is on stand-by while Craig Gower is expected to be fit.

Penrith half-back Gower played against Great Britain despite picking up the injury in the warm-up.

New Zealand Warriors prop Steve PrIce missed the game but is also back in contention.

Australia squad: A Minichiello (Sydney Roosters); M King (Melbourne), M Gasnier (St George Illawarra), M Cooper (St George Illawarra), B Tate (Brisbane); T Barrett (St George Illawarra), C Gower (Penrith); P Civoniceva (Brisbane), D Buderus (Newcastle, capt), J Ryles (St George Illawarra), L O'Donnell (North Queensland), C Fitzgibbon (Sydney Roosters), B Kennedy (Manly), S Prince (Wests Tigers), C Wing (Sydney Roosters), T Waterhouse (Penrith), M O'Meley (Canterbury), W Mason (Canterbury), S Pryce (NZ Warriors).
