Anything could happen at the pointy end of the season , and it goes way beyond Swinton . It's a big drop from that trap door , every team looking into it will swallow principle to avoid the fall . With the rules as they are can you blame anyone ? Short term fix because if some go down there may be no long term . Gonna be a scramble !!!
And it's one thing having principles but quite another thing standing by them in times of pressure!!!!!
I remember when .............................
"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

only one solution is to get as far away from the drop zone before it comes a free for all. Thats why the next four league games are crucial for Worky. It will be also interesting come play off time when the teams which finish say 6-8 dont get any help from the DR - who will be in the best postion then

Like has been said, under 23's are fine as they can develop at the non SL club.

If Briers plays a blinder tonight and beats haven on his own, then we all might as well call it a day and give RL a big swerve. The clowns who run the game will have turned it into a laughing stock.
Swinton aren't to blame for this, it's all down to idiots in charge. The only positive thing that could come out of tonights game, is the uproar it will cause, and maybe force the RL to have a look at the mess they have made.
