Another massive game really.  I know the pressure feels like it has eased following the two wins, but only one of these was in the league and if we were to loose on Sunday we would be back in the mire.  With confidence hopefully restored we should win, but if a certain Adrian Morley plays for them, as he did last week, it should be interesting.

If we can take the three points and stop them getting a bonus point then I think we are rocking and rolling....

The way Swinton are playing the DR system (OK, I know we arent squeaky clean on this issue) I must confess that I would like to see them going down to be honest.

To be honest, I don't really want to see anyone go down, as I think it could be goodbye forever for some clubs.

 

I think the way everyone is using the DR system, shows desperation, the wilderness that is relegation is a very frightening prospect for everyone!

Got to agree hugh - I would rather swinton went down than the rams, but that wouldn't be either personal or anything to do with DR, just selfishness on my part. I reckon any club going down this time will struggle to survive, and everybody will do what it takes to avoid it. I keep toying with the scenario in which the rams need to win the last game to avoid the drop, and Bradford, without a game that week, offer us samutt, Kearney and purtill. Hand on hearts - who would be so morally outraged amongst the rams faithful as to want GM to turn them down. Not me for sure.

Spot on!

 

I fear for RL, the powers that be need to be very careful. I know all Clubs are a business, but they rely on supporters to trade.

We shouldn't get too confident. We have a task to perform and must work hard to overcome whomsoever plays for the Lions.
I wouldn't wish them to be relegated as I have enjoyed the friendliness of their fans, most noticeable in recent times when they played at Whitefield.

Dewsbury 24 - 16 Swinton
Att: 674

I put Swinton fans, along with those of Rochdale and Oldham as the friendliest and most sporting fans in rugby - must be something to do with the air in that part of lancs. :)  It's another reason I'd like the hornets and roughyeds to be brought back into the championship and - sorry, but s0d the development areas - give them their own comp.

On form we should win this one, as we should have the Workington game.

 

All the same I reckon we'll get on another roll at last:

 

Dews 28 - 16 Lions

Thats very nice of you Nick - so are you coming down with us or have you issues with another team

Nar..only Batley.  Now if they went down that would be grand.....Nice of others to comment on the friendliness of your fans and to be honest I have to agree, but unfortunately two teams have got to go down and if its the team that chose to play Morley, Briers etc  I aint losing any sleep.  Rest assured however that Batley are my first choice....
