The Cairns coach Aaron Fearne's expecting the New Zealand Breakers to be at full strength for tomorrow night's Australian national basketball league grand final decider in Auckland.

The Taipans arrived late last night and finish training about now while the Breakers session is closed.

One of the home side's leading players Kirk Penney missed most of yesterday's tough workout, leaving the the gym in pain with a recurring back problem

But Fearne says he'll guarantee the star shooting guard will be on court at the North Shore Events centre.
