Heard its the first team, so should be an interesting game.

Just a pity it clashes with the Lions / Army game or it would of been rugby nirvana this weekend. Maybe could of offered them the ground for a 12:30 kick off followed by the Swinton game. Could of been of benefit to both clubs!
The weak conform, the strong survive.

Well we don't have an academy team so yes the Swinton team will come from the first team squad which includes the likes of Paul Smith , Ian Watson , Graham Holroyd, Aaron Smith, Gavin Dodd, Gary Hulse, Phil Joseph and many more.

Should be a good game.

See you all tomorrow i will be in the press box writing my report

Good luck for the new season

rovers 16-44 swinton.
A decent 1st half in which a little more composure close to the swinton line could have seen fev go in at the half in front!
However, the pace and experience of a near 1st team told in the second half as swinton ran fev daft for half an hour racking up 32 unanswered 2nd half points.
The young rovers never gave up and never stopped trying with young hardacre looking every bit ready for a go at the 1st team. Rovers completed the 2nd half with 2 well taken tries late on.

Lots of positives for rovers. When the likes of tom carr and gareth swift return to the squad with the addition of 1st team fringe players, this team will win the league this season in my opinion.
Honestly, for those who haven't tried it, an hour watching these lads is cracking value and just great fun.
You just can't buy this humour!

Quite agree Robin. A very good display. With the number of subs, the period you talk about in the second half was nearly Rovers 3rd team. I'm really looking forward to U21/Reserve Grade/A team (whichever they decide to call it this year) fixtures this year.
