Savea still struggling with flu

5:59 am on 7 November 2013

Cory Jane could finally make his return to the All Blacks this weekend as they take on France in Paris.

Winger Julian Savea is still bothered by the flu he picked up on his way to Europe and didn't take part in training early in the week.

The All Blacks say he has turned a corner and will be available for selection, but it is likely he'll be low on energy, meaning Jane could get his first game in a year.

Jane was down to mark his return after knee surgery against Australia in Dunedin last month, but was forced out with a hamstring injury.
