Wing will be right to fly

Injured Australian utility Craig Wing says he's in no doubt for Saturday's Tri Nations final with New Zealand at Elland Road.

Coach Wayne Bennett seemed concerned by Wing's sternum injury which caused him problems late in Australia's 26-14 Test win over Great Britain last weekend.

But the creative Wing - pulled into the touring team from holidays in Hawaii after injuries to Nathan Hindmarsh and skipper Darren Lockyer - says the injury won't stop him playing if he's picked when Bennett trims his 19-man squad to 17 players later in the week.

New Zealand meanwhile received a massive boost overnight with confirmation champion halfback Stacey Jones will rush back from the birth of his third child in Auckland to play for the Kiwis in the big final.
