hes been very poor, but he probably had his best game last time out. although he was still probably the worst out the 4 props.

he just hasn't shown any ex- SL form on the pitch at all so far. If it was announced he was packing in or even signing for s' haven I wouldnt be bothered at all.

I wonder if they'll extend Walne's loan again ? Is he worth it ? We're pretty well covered there with the DR , and especially if Thacks is back . And if Rooney is near that means Red gives more back row cover . Dowes has improved with the season but with his pedigree and achievements has been hugely disappointing over the whole term . Cowards been the main prop for me and arguably the best forward all together , he deserves huge praise when you consider where he was barely a year ago .

In my view he's improved quite a bit. As we've seen this season against a number of teams the key isn't necessarily to do something spectacular but play error free rugby. That's the only reason Sheffield and Halifax beat us and Batley stopped us getting a bonus point. He's cut most of those mistakes out and is now playing like many forwards in this league.

have you seen him break the line once this season?

Not every forward we've seen this season does but it's the ones who play error free rugby that come away with the points generally speaking. The teams that have beaten us at derwent park have outperformed us in the backs rather than the forwards in most cases

If we play a full 80 mins like we did the first 15 against Keighley we will give you a game. Otherwise I can see nothing but a Workington win.

As previously mentioned, Swinton are struggling to field a half back line-up according to their official web site this morning.
Assistant player-coach Ian Watson starts a two-match ban for standing on an opponent against Sheffield while Craig Harvey has only just returned to training after missing last week's defeat to Keighley. Chaz I'Anson is having a scan on Saturday on a pecs muscle injury but could be available. That leaves Martin Ainscough as the only other recognised half-back.
"Ian is an important player for us so it is a bit of a blow to lose him," said coach Gary Chambers. "We need to see how Chaz and Craig are before deciding what to do at half-back...." Dual-registration players Brad Dwyer, Tyrone McCarthy and Ben Harrison, who featured against Keighley, will not play this week but Danny Bridge will return to the side.

To be honest I'm not that bothered about seeing Thacks or Calders again. Talked big games before the season started but both have been liabilities. Give me a younger prop that wants to run all day (Acton type for e.g.). As for Calders well meh!

if your there abu could you post and let us know. i think theres a very good chance that it will be a town side without any dual reg. i just hope were not taking this game for granted and expect to win easily. after paddys game last time, he should be in before calders.
