Roff passed fit to play
March 3, 2000

Wallaby winger Joe Roff was Friday cleared of a serious back injury and is expected to play for the ACT Brumbies in their Super 12 rugby match against South Africa's Sharks here next weekend.

Roff hurt his back in a trial match against Otago a fortnight ago and was forced to leave the field early during last week's 18-15 loss to Auckland.

But a team spokesman said Roff had been cleared of any fracture during an MRI scan Friday and the injury was found to be the result of a muscle strain.

Coach Eddie Jones said he was confident Roff would take his place against
the Sharks.
