I think we both suffered from injuries at the end. Obviously RG3 was hurt and we lost Gronk, both key players.... Excuses, excuses!

I'm hoping to be over in August. My mother will be 100 the week of the York City home match. Keeping my fingers crossed! Maybe I'll bring her along! She was a big fan years ago.

I was also thinking of coming over for the 50th Anniversary dinner too, but the closest match is Sheffield away the night before. Makes it a logistical nightmare.

The majority of the youngsters in question are still "Warrington players" and are on a season long loan with Swinton, they still train full time with Warrington and train additionally with Swinton in the evenings.

It just shows you that dr needs changing asap otherwise swinton lions identity will be watered down still further. Might as well let tony smith pick our team for sunday.

All because the superleague clubs didnt want to run an under 23's competition, they are not bothered that it's going to ruin the championship as we know it and turn it into a gloryfied superleague a team competition.

im afraid to say he all but is,he his certainly stating which Warrington players he wants to be playing and which position to play in,on a match by match basis,that doesn't leave much say for Steve McCormack .

So we all are supposed to believe that guys who call themselves Cumbrianwolf and Ranger12 are more credible sources than the RL itself? Julian?

Warrington wanted Paul Wood to again play for us, they were told that in order to be considered he would have to train with us all week with no inclusion in the Warrington squad. He didn't and wasn't selected as a dual reg as you would have found out had you come to support your team.
That statement was told to me first hand by Swinton's assistant coach.
I suggest you stop this ridiculous crusade of trying to muck stir against the club that many on here truely do support.
