LONDON, Nov 24 AAP - New Zealand winger Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has been cleared of a fractured leg but it is too soon to say if he will be fit to face Australia in the Rugby League World Cup final.

The 20-year-old grabbed two tries in Saturday's last-gasp 20-18 win over England at Wembley to advance to the final at Old Trafford but left the changing rooms on crutches.

The Sydney Roosters' player was wearing a moon boot after suffering an injury to his lower right leg late in the semi-final.

X-rays have cleared the tournament's leading metre-maker of serious injury, but Kiwi medical staff will monitor him and second-rower Frank Pritchard in the lead-up to Sunday's (AEST)) final.

Pritchard missed the semi-final after picking up a hamstring strain in training.

Bullocking winger Manu Vatuvei also missed the Wembley match with a groin strain but is available for the repeat of the 2008 final.

Meanwhile Kangaroos fullback Billy Slater appears to be winning his race to be fit for the final with the 30-year-old making a good recovery from a knee injury.
