All four seem to be moving freely with no sign of any discomfort. At least the bench but possibly they will be used so others can rest on the comfy seats. Especially as we will, probably, be mathematically safe by Kick-off time.

Re: Wood, Rodriguez, JBG and Brady...

If Cork isn't fit then I would expect JBG to come in on the right with Brownhill moving into the centre.

If 1 forward recovers then I would expect them to start with Vydra having a rest on the bench, if 2 recover then McNiel back to the left and Vydra getting that well earned rest back on the bench
