Late fitness test for Fainga’a

Date published: April 12 2016

The Rebels will give flanker Colby Fainga'a a late fitness test ahead of their clash with the Hurricanes to determine if he will feature in their squad.

Fainga'a has been on the sidelines with an elbow problem that he sustained during their Super Rugby round one win over the Force in Perth.

But he could return on Friday, following on from wing Sefa Naivalu's comeback from a broken leg against the Waratahs in Sydney on April 3.

In other injury news at the Melbourne franchise, wing Tom English, lock Steve Cummins and full-back Mike Harris continue their rehabilitation.
