Common Osier or a hybrid of it?

Leaf shape, the slight downroll of the edges, and the hairs underneath, all look close to Common Osier, Salix viminalis. The toothing on the edges and the rather wide lower leaves in the photo suggest perhaps a sallow (Salix cinerea or caprea) parent or grandparent too.
