Four players out and five players in, as you are entitled to have a squad of 13 with a replacement for injuries. The team is as follows, with stars beside the newcomers:
Austa (Södertälje), Borg (Norrköping) and Paulsson (Exiles) have all been in the Swedish Seven before, while Kalling-Smith and Milner, both based in England, have played for the Swedish XV. All decent players but I am more worried about their ability to play together as a team.
It is reasonable to assume that the other teams will maintain the same level as last week although some may be getting irritated that they keep getting beaten by Ireland and Germany. Sweden must get off the bottom spot if they are to have any hope of staying in the GP for 2019. On a very good error-free day there are 3 – 4 teams they could beat. We´ll see how it works out on Saturday.
