Ben Wood had an absolute cracker out wide in the second half and must stay in the second row,Swinton just couldn't cope in a similar way that we couldn't keep Joseph under control in the first half. Roden was pressurised out of the game by lighting Swinton defence but we rectified this by kicking in behind their umbrella defence and scoring two tries for Gilly. Clarkey had an excellent second half at prop and Boults got through a lot of work especially in the first half.
Overall I thought that whilst Swinton were the better team and deserved to win if we start picking a consistent team especially in the forwards(why were two hookers on the bench when Elly and Gilchrist were both available) then we can match them.

We have to work on bigger yardage kicks on penalties, rather than the slicing 10 yarders, so the ball rather than the forwards do more work midfield,
It is simply not smart to keep kicking the restart ball deep to a side that was consistently returning the ball big yards due to time without pressure to rev up and spot gaps...RU style restart ,so we can contest the ball is better.
As for Big Phil, hes just strong as a pair of Oxen let alone one...who wouldn`t struggle to put him down.
Junior looked ok at fullback.
I think we missed McNally`s creativity...Greg turned out for Barra yesterday and played well!
Swinton are good but we will be better at Whitebank...We can beat them!
