Listening to 5lives RG preview just now and Ross H is one of the guests. Ross seemed to really play down the likelyhood of Andy playing. Overs and Neil Harman both reckoned he was going to play.
What is obvious to me is that the first scan/specialist opinion has not resulted in a definitive view that playing RG would cause further damage - I'm pretty sure that if that had happened, Andy would already have withdrawn.
I reckon so too, but I guess he's waiting to see what today's scan shows up, and when the second specialist's opinion is, before making a definite announcement. That way he can hopefully silence his critics.
If I had to put my money on it though, I'm sure Andy won't play if there's the slightest doubt about his fitness - and Ross knows him a lot better than either Overend or Harman.
Batz - if you double post, you can delete one of them by clicking on the 'Delete' box in the top RH corner beside 'Quote' and 'Edit'. Took me months to discover that!
