Luger facing late fitness test
Paris
October 23, 1999

Dan Luger will have to complete a fitness test on Sunday morning before taking his place in the side to face the Springboks.
Luger, with four tries so far in the tournament, has been suffering from a groin problem which flared up during the midweek quarter-final play-off victory over Fiji.
Luger was unable to take a full part in training on Friday, and the England medical team will run a final check over him on the morning of the match.
Austin Healey, on the replacements' bench this weekend, is also a doubt, with a back complaint, but England coach Clive Woodward is confident that both players will take their places in the starting 22.
"I believe that Dan will make it, and so do the medical people. If he is out, then Austin will go on the wing, but we've also had Leon Lloyd and Martyn Wood training with us this week. Luger has been one of the stars of the tournament, he is a key player for us and obviously I am hoping that he makes it," Woodward added.
