Swinton have signed six players on dual registration from Warrington.

Brad Dwyer, Ryan Shaw, Danny Bridge, Gene Ormsby, Jordan Burke and Gavin Bennion will all make their debuts against Salford on Sunday at the Salford City Stadium (2pm).

"They are all quality players who have come through the ranks at Warrington and we are delighted to have them on board," said coach Steve McCormack.

Dwyer, 19, is a hooker who made nine appearances for Warrington's first team last season, eight as a substitute.

Shaw, 20, is a former England academy centre who has had spells at Castleford and Leigh.

Bridge, 20, is the brother of Warrington half-back Chris. He plays front or back row. He began his career at Waterhead before joining the Wigan academy in 2009 and represented England at both under-15 and under-18 levels.

Ormsby, 20, is a winger while full-back Jordan Burke, 21, skippered the Warrington Under-20s last season and made his first team debut in the Challenge Cup against Keighley.

Bennion, 20 is a front or back row forward who started out at Latchford Albion and played in England’s Academy tour of Australia in August.



Brad Dwyer is the one that should really make us all smile and more importantly give us that fast scrum half we`ve all been hoping for.

It appears that Santa has dropped of a few late presents, Brad Dwyer's name being the one that stands out. I only hope we have the players to keep up with him!

There is some class here amongst these young stars . I am very glad we have young Dwyer i remember seeing him ripping holes in Catalan Dragons in France last year. Ryan Shaw is another great player and a good goal kicker too.
Can't wait for the game tomorrow to see how they all go.

Well done those in charge at the Lions its been a good news week all round for the club.

To be frank, this is getting like the music hall joke: - "How do you keep an idiot in suspense? I'll tell you tomorrow!".

The Kidd version is: "How do you keep Swinton supporters in suspense? Tell them something big's going to happen on Agecroft in the next month or two."

This formula has been stuck to now for 7 years.
Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Some definite quality amongst these players, good to see a half back and centre among the positions being covered.

Having so many players in the side whose first call is to another club still doesn't sit comfortably though, afraid to say.
