MARTIN OFFIAH, the Wigan and Great Britain wing, has passed a fitness test on his knee injury and returns today for the Greenalls Lancashire Cup final against St Helens at Knowsley Road. Offiah should be fit for the World Cup final against Australia at Wembley next Saturday, but the Great Britain coach Mal Reilly will be on tenterhooks with 11 of his squad in action today.

AUSTRALIA have named their likely Wembley line-up for today's game against Cumbria at Workington. Mal Meninga, who will lead the side against Great Britain, partners Steve Renouf in the centre.

AUSTRALIA (v Cumbria, at Carlisle today): Brasher; Carne, Meninga, Renouf, Mackay; Fittler, Langer; Sargent, S Walters, Lazarus, Cartwright, Gillespie, Clide. Subs: Hancock, Stuart, Sironen, Lindner.
