OK so its the biggest game of our season coming up on Sunday.

 

How many of you on here are intending to attend the game ?.  Lets see if we can get as many Lions fans up to Cumbria as we can.

 

Maybe if people have spaces in their cars they could offer the spare seats to other Lions fans ?

 

Lets get behind the team and help them pull off the great escape Gary and the lads deserve the support and are playing some good stuff at the moment.

 

What do people think ?

 

NO Keith we are not chartering a train and Chris we are not taking an LUT bus :biggrin:

My fellow Lions - Let's get up there in our numbers!

 

This game is huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge to the club. That's your club, our club, my ******* club. And your / our / my club needs / warrants / deserves, every bit of support you / we / I can muster on the West Cumbrian coast come Sunday!

 

There's a multitude of possibilities / ifs / buts, of what can / might / will happen, depending on other results but..........................

 

The simplest of scenarios is, WIN AND WE STAY UP!!! So let's roar your / our / my Swinton team onto a resounding victory, and b******s to the other matches!

 

COME ON YOU LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Daily, my intense dislike of the Pinks, Rugby Yawnion, Manchester United, and far-right politics, grows ever larger, and will continue to do so forever more!

Question! What's the connection between Rugby League and Rugby Yawnion? Answer! There isn't one!

My girl-friend asked "If you had to choose between me and Swinton who would it be?" I replied "You know the answer to that one without even asking!"

Afternoon !

Hope some of you who want to go on Sunday have taken up the offers further up the page and got yourself a seat in a car share to Whitehaven.
If you are not sure how to go about it register your interest on here and anyone who has spare seats will contact you via the private message at the top right of your page.

In the mean time it would be good to get a straw poll of who is going. We have four and Spelly in our car !! :-)

4 of us are going up to Cumbria.

We should have a good chance, we're playing the best rugby we have done all season and Haven arguably the worst they have (although I know they've had some very tough games recently and bad luck with injuries). We've beaten them once this season, one final win will mean Championship rugby for 2014 and a (long) shot at making "SL2" in 2015.

Get behind the boys and we'll do it! Let's try and all stand/sit together as well and make some noise!

Oh my god! I used to live for the away trip to Whitehaven when I was up North. The Club organised bus always stopped in Cockermouth at the pub next to Jennings Brewery.

That is one hell of a trip I would love to make this weekend, especially with so much at stake.

COME ON LIONS!!!!!!

I will be listening via BBC Cumbria (if the links will let me)

Best of luck on sunday. After the last four games I think confidence in the haven camp is very low their forum is quieter than a library and I can see you pulling it off. Local fans are predicting their lowest home crowd of the season so get as many up here as you can.

Saturday night in Broughton-in-Furness, and Sunday night in Keswick for me. A pint of Jennings and a (pretend) big fat cigar in Keswick on Sunday night would be nice! I know of another 6 going up.
