Totally agree with that Duffymoon - what I was saying is that I just hope the rest of the day followed on all positives for us Swinton fans

Ruined by the worst performance ive ever seen by an official. I've never walked out of a game when we've been beaten by such a score and thought that the ref won the game for the other side. I would as go as far to say that if the betting committee looked into the game they would suspend the official!
Dont worry, it will soon be Christmas!

So you would have won with a different referee?

It was pitiful by mr hewer
However...After we went 14 6 up we relaxed far too much...went to 14 18...and that was it
Hope Jordan Burke is ok...he was great till his injury.
Why was Chris Clarke in the centre?!

Actually, we had at least four scoring opportunities in the first half - but due to lack of experience they were missed. Second half started well with nice try - but then some bad decisions by the ref + Sheffield improved greatly so they scored 46 points in the second half............plenty of effort but I am sorry, but we need a few more experienced players in the team.

I think it will be a dog fight between ourselves, Barrow, Hunslet, York, Doncaster and Workington to avoid relegation.....:(

I think you can probably throw Keighley into that mix as well! Relegation would be an absolute disaster,lets not even contemplate that.

we would have got a bonus point. come the end of the season that point that we have had stolen off us today could well be crucial. but hey as long as the big clubs in the league are winning who cares.

Sheffield are hardly a big club! Credit where credit is due look how far they have come since they beat us in the play off final in 2006.

OK. Just wondered. Just to accuse the referee of corruption seems a bit extreme, but fair enough, I wasn't there.

Watching the super league over the weekend on tv the referees have had a major influence on results
They are poor
Today however our own composure and inability to finish particularly in the first half were just as much to blame.

There was a diabolical forward pass missed in the Bradford v Cas game last night! Poor refereeing decisions are always difficult to accept hopefully over the course of the season things will even themselves out.
