At least it should generate some publicity and maybe help boost the attendance for Thursday.

Totally gone to far now. Absolutely ridiculous. Where has the soul of the club gone?

This makes a mockery of our once proud sport. Not your fault lads, but a sad day for the game when SL clubs are using Championship teams as more or less reserve sides to get their players fit.

 

I dont mind DR for under 23's as there's at least some purpose to that, i.e. blooding young English talent at a decent level, but this is something else.

 

And i'd say exactly the same if we (Batley) played Danny Brough in the same manner. In fact after 20 odds years supporting the club home and away i'd walk away.

 

Feel truly sorry for the loyal and pasionate fans of a proud. 'proper' and traditional club like Swinton. You deserve better....from your board and the RFL.

Lottery number please Duffy! English or Euro, I don't mind. Ha!

Unbelievable scenes. Of course it makes a mockery of the game (and for any visiting fans to our forum, we already know how bad it is) but nonetheless, one of the best players to don a Lions shirt for a good few years if he actually plays.

And I'm not staying at home, I don't have anything else to do and this fiver's burning a hole in my pocket! I'll spend my cash on what I like, cheers.

When Dewsbury played against Swinton earlier in the season, Swinton had nine Warrington players in the side, how has this even been allowed to happen? if I was in the squad at the start of the season and getting over looked week in week out so that my club could play someone from another team I would be well ###### off, what is the point in giving it everything you have at training to be told not this week, it has been mentioned on numerous occasions how does this achieve a settled side when basically all you are are just been used to either keep non picked players match fit or players that have been out for a while someone to have a run out with until they are in good enough physical shape to get back into their 1st team, DR should only be allowed for up and coming youngsters or not at all.
