Seeing how some of the players looked banged up, may have to make some changes. Big worries are May and Heinz, especially if Nowell is not fit. Would we risk going into the final without a 9 on the bench? If not who gets parachuted in? Put Sinkler at 9... Seriously Ford goes 9, faz 10 , Manu 12, sl...
