Going to the game feeling we can win,but at worst we need a bonus point
On the Barrow forums prediction thread all 16 posts are going for a Barrow win, can we match that???

We are due a good win up there but we never really play well on that small pitch.

We won't have Danny Bridge & Glenn Riley as they are both in the Warrington Squad to play Bradford Bulls.

Whoever plays should be a tight game.

Bridge and riley are on loan at warrington for min of 5 weeks I believe so it will be some weeks if at all till we will see them. I assume that is why cooper and sarsfield have come in.

Think a bonus is a must, a draw a good result for both and a win would be sweet. Still.feel we have not achieved consistency yet in set completion and therefore have yet to play at our full potential for a full 80 mins. I think barrow have been similar so whoever turns up Blazin on the day will win out. Prediction 12 - 12!

I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.

I think you will find that the Craven Park pitch is actually full size, unlike many others in the league.

Simply not good enough. We have gone backwardsi. I don't care where our new coach as lcome from but for me we've got worse, not even a bonus point.

Not good enough. Must win on Thursday now but I've lost all faith.

After the Toulouse fiasco we were led to believe they were Super League shoe-ins and the result was understandable & acceptable. Then Toulouse got beat off York. Now this today. You can dress it up however you like, but it's not been the best of starts for the coach.

At least 12 of the starting 17 were Swinton players today as opposed to those fulfilling obligations to Warrington Wolves!

Our defence was the strongpoint of Ian Watsons tenure as coach,definitely not the forte of Mr Chambers thus far!

Yes you'll have to tell Mr Chambers to tell his players to start tackling below the neck.

What a joke of a performance that was! Defence was absolutely shocking. I think barrow broke the line every other set of 6! It's needs sorting quick because staying in this league is a must!

This was about as bad/ worse than the York game. 10 mins in we were camped on their line. We even scored a try.They then got the ball and never looked back. As said earlier our defence has taken 10 steps back as we were dire. Defence was our strong point 6 weeks ago, not any more. Improvement is needed and a must win game against Whitehaven.

Their is a positive about all this. We got in for nowt. Bonus point to us. ha ha

Heard on Radio Manchester that Briers and Morley are hopeful of being fit for Warringtons cup tie with Salford on May 11th.Wonder if they will get a run out with Swinton first?

Sorry but that's just wrong if it happens completely outwith the spirit of dual reg/twinning IMHO but of course you will all vilify me for saying it !
