Well that kind of thing doesn't happen over night and this is a start. Hopefully it'll continue into the future!

At the core of everything you need a winning team. Fact.

At the core of everything you need a winning team. Fact.

 

And the way Swinton Lions and Warrington are going about Partnering will only help one of those clubs to build a winning team, and it ain't Swinton!  Fact.

 

From Swinton's point of view, this Partnership is not giving rise to a successful side.  Or was the version of the league table I looked at yesterday upside down?

 

It was very clearly demonstrated during Paul Kidd's tenure as coach that he doesn't understand how to get the best out of players, because to do that you need to inspire them and build a cohesive unit. This same hapless lack of understanding and lack of empathy is again crystal clear in the manner of the Partnership agreement of which he is chief architect.  You don't build a motivated, committed and effective Swinton Lions team by giving the likes of Paul Wood, Chris Bridge and Lee Briers "guest star" appearances for the purpose of readying them for action with Warrington.

 

Why is it that several players have made a transition out of the Lions and into sides higher up the Championship or even into Super League, yet whilst they were at Swinton the team floundered towards the bottom of the table?  Does this not indicate that whilst they were at Swinton the club wasn't getting the best out of them?


Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Like I've said before several times the rules won't change this season will they? Should we just step back,let everyone else involved in d/r exploit all the loopholes like we have. And get battered even worse than we already are doing or do we try to fight. Either way you will claim moral high ground what ever our course of action, oh to have your foresight and sage wisdom. If we win with them in the team we are abusing the system,if we dont then we haven't invested in the team and d/r is failing. Its a win win in your eyes isn't it.What a Muppet.

Yet all of a sudden it's now ok for your beloved Leigh to operate D/R players.Hmmm.

Notice how the compliant was from fev who don't want too many competitive teams in the league to oppose their march to the summit. Re: Breaking the salary cap,we won't will we as wire pay their wages.

That newspaper cutting was dated Feb 7th .

Why bring it up now in nearly 3 months later.

Lets get behind the team tomorrow and bring a mate. There is a very good interview with Lee on the RFL news link. Go have a read

Im beggared to work out why Paul Kidds tenure as coach has raised its head so long and so far into this argument. ...

I wonder whats next. ..Paul Smith being a bad decision. ...Tony Humphries coaching the team by mobile phone?

Hindsight has to be the most beautiful tool of the doom monger because in rugby league draws are so rare its win or lose 99% of the time...so our season has been rubbish.....mystic phil starts to look good

Our season could have been amazing with all these players and we could be top of the table. We could have increased crowds and I guarantee that still some people would be moaning about Paul Kidd John Kidd and any other stuff. That's their way. Anyone we beat could say its only down to dual reg.

I also guarantee that next year whether dual reg is here in this form or another. ...Swinton will still be here


Do you know what. ...I also guarantee that the vast majority of fans couldn't give a flying fig about all this stuff we discuss so vehemently. Theres only a few regular contributors on our forum and if we are representative then half of us just want to get on with it and half of us don't

We will still all be there on Thursday suppoting Swinton.
Well almost all
