Horan ready for Queensland return
March 2, 2000
Wallaby centre Tim Horan has been rushed back into the Queensland team to play Super 12 favourites Wellington on Saturday.
Horan missed Queensland's 50-13 drubbing to Otago last weekend because of injury but has been recalled for Saturday's match against the Hurricanes in New Plymouth.
Elton Flatley has been moved from centre to flyhalf with Shane Drahm moving to the bench although Flatley still faces a fitness test on his sore knee.
Wallaby hooker Michael Foley is also in doubt because of a knee problem and has been bracketed with Sean Hardman. Both he and Flatley will undergo fitness tests on Friday.
Queensland - 15-Chris Latham; 14-Damian Smith, 13-Daniel Herbert, 12-Tim Horan, 11-Nathan Williams; 10-Elton Flatley, 9-Sam Cordingley; 8-Toutai Kefu, 7-David Wilson, 6-Mark Connors, 5-John Eales (captain), 4-Nathan Sharpe; 3-Fletcher Dyson, 2-Michael Foley or Sean Hardman, 1-Glenn Panoho.
