I think if someone is withdrawn early enough then they can be replaced in the squad but I’m not sure what the cut off time for that is. As someone said, there’s nothing actually stopping us from bringing anyone in to play, just a penalty later on.Don’t they have to come from the named emergencies?
Wood has had a terrible few weeks and I’d agree, although he’s not alone tbf. I’d be very surprised if he plays many games next year.I’m just mystified why Wood is playing, he was awful last week. Love the guy, but I thought he stamped his own papers. Cordy has his limitations but he does have more experience in defence than Scache and Gardy, both coming back from injury so I can see the caution.
I have a suspicion that Bevo thinks we can win this game without Martin, but we will need him for the next two games if we get through, so he is giving him an extra week.
