Finch expected to play on Friday

Sydney Roosters halfback Brett Finch is expected to be fit for Friday night's NRL clash against Manly at Aussie Stadium despite suffering back spasms during his side's 30-16 victory over Canberra on Saturday night.

Finch missed yesterday's Roosters training session, but club physiotherapist Craig Walker was confident he would recover in time for Friday's match against Manly at Aussie Stadium.
