It was only Farah being very stubborn that got him out there today in the first place! He needs to be wrapped up and looked after till friday night.
I think Lawrence picked up an arm,elbow,shoulder injury? Did anyone else see him trying to stretch/shake it out in second half?
Surely you guys know that our coaching staff are old foxes when it comes to this stuff. Just listening to Simmons saying we;ll probably have 3-4 changes to our line up for friday, Please! only concerns would be payne and skando, payne will play unless the damage is structural and skando is 50/50 if its a bad cork especially with short turn around. So not too many changes biggest concern is skandalis’ cork. Although I guess Halatau is back this week right? So he could slot in nicely.
Well sounds like Payne’s gone…
We have more than enough quality to cover Payne imo… so it shouldn’t hurt us too much… if anything it will get Galea more time on the field which is a good thing…
Skando will be huge loss IMO…
I think the rest should be fine from what i saw…
I would bring in either Al Beetham (Surprise packet and has been playing awesome of late, bring some more size and agression to the bench) or Laurie (however i think Parra would run right through him).
Shrinak would get smashed against Parra so doesnt leave us with much size to go with of the bench.
My bench would be:
17-Beetham/Laurie/Akeripa (sometimes something different can work when no-ones knows it is coming).
I just hope to God that they do not add Collis to the bench….that would do me and our hopes.
