Slater confident he'll be fit to

Try-scoring sensation Billy Slater is confident he'll be fit to play for the Melbourne Storm against the Sydney Roosters in their National Rugby League match at Olympic Park on Sunday.

Slater has been battling flu and a calf strain all week and will be assessed at the Storm's final training session tomorrow. But the Storm's leading tryscorer this season says he's confident he will be okay to play.

The Roosters are sitting third in the NRL, with the Storm fifth.
