Here we go again - we've said it a few times recently -  'another massive game'  to avoid relegation

Unfortunately with only 2 games remaining it's not in our hands and no matter what happens tomorrow nothing will be decided,

With the bonus point scenario there  are too many options to start to consider but in my opinion 3 points tomorrow plus 1 at Whitehaven will keep us up.

 

Our recent performances suggest we are capable of that so down to you lads.

If we lose and Hunslet win at Sheffield we are relegated. Must win match tomorrow.

If Sheffield lose they will be out of the title race too.

The lads were angry in the way they managed to lose the game on Sunday and they are looking to put it right again tomorrow night.

Get behind the team no negative thoughts or comments or destiny is in our own hands.

It would be I joke if hunslet stay up because of a load of dr playing for them, as far as I know you only have rhys Williams playing against us tommorow, so good luck to you's and I hope York and hunslet get relegated :)

if its any consolation we are hopeless away from home (York being the exception) and your form has turned so if things go the way they have been you should jump above us in the table. 

 

Whatever I will be there to witness it :shout:

Not being negative Riggy, but things could be decided tomorrow if we don't win...so let's go and win!

We've been outstanding over the last 4 games (first half at Donny excluded), if we play like we have been doing, we should win.

I'm fairly confident of a Sheffield victory to be fair, but I'm more worried about Hunslet's final game of the season. If Fev lose against Sheffield a week today then the match at the SLS next Sunday is a dead game for them.

I would like to think that 2 wins will be good enough for survival and I know that we can do it.

One final point, why does it always seem to be Swinton and Hunslet battling it out?! Either at the bottom or the top, we're consistently side by side. I know the obvious stuff, 2nd RL team in our respective cities that are largely football orientated anyway. But still, it's weird isn't it?!

Let's get behind the lads tomorrow! Come on Lions!

Yes 1997 we won the second division and then Les Holiday beat us in the Premiership final in the rain

Quite right Bryce I overlooked that option and knowing Rugby League anything can happen - only have to go back to those last seconds at Doncaster

Hopefully we'll learn from that!

The last try was fairly good compared to the 3 that were placed under the posts by the big runner through the middle, they were the disappointing ones. However, that bonus point could be vital now.

Looking forward to tonight now! Btw, this should be the Premier Sports game...if they are actually covering a game.
