That was a game they should have won . Swinton are very average , and that's with Warrington giving them all that help. Bit worrying for them . Nice headgear by Georgie mind , looked right out of Seal Team Six .

It was easy to see how Swinton beat Hunslet 44 - 40 as they like to be in possession of the ball and run with it but they also don't like defending so well either.    There was some very easy tries on both sides tonight.    The last 22 pass movement deserved a try but why did they kick it?    I would have kept it going to the right.    I thought Briers made a couple of bad decisions going for the drop goal on about 2nd or 3rd tackle instead of pushing for a try first.

There are 22 executive boxes at lsv holding up to 20 each. They sold most with a meal and gave 1 away I believe.

Still no evidence that DR is driving the fans away. It is more likely money constraints, bad marketing and other attractions.

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

You can always tell how Haven are doing in a match without knowing the score by Cox's comments!!    He starts to run the players down when they are losing but is usually very calm when they are winning.    He isn't biased either way because Radio Cumbria say so if you ask them.   :D

Well, I turned off his commentary in the first few minutes when he couldn't tell Briers from Rooney!

Shocked we didn't get the ' he' s not a patch on Rooney ' line . I stuck with the telly comms . Dave Woods is top notch , Sky should grab him , put him with Rod Studd and Carney and drop all the rest , they're past their sell by date or are unneeded hangers on

Yes Mr Cox is every bit as "Special" as the numpties on Deludedfans.com. Biased against haven !!! Oh my word !!!! Why would you hate the bonus point Mr Cox ? without it, your team would have come away with nothing, and that would have been a travesty. (I'm going soft !)
