I think we deserved at least a bonus point
My m o m would be James Brown
Watson again was outstanding as was Penny
I think Nanyn had one of his best games for a while too.

Very encouraging and we will only get better and good to see the team have some fight and passion within it.

I agree, worth at least a bonus point - I though Cooper's tackling was tremendous, some poor decisions from the ref today. I think as the season goes on the team can only get better, Sheffield had to work really hard today and considering that the Swinton squad has had little or no game time before the season proper, they competed really well today.

I think we were robbed by the weather. 1st half into a strong wind with driving rain at times and we come in at half time with a small lead after expending a lot of energy. 2nd half the wind drops off and no rain!
Bonus point would be a fair result and some big games previously mentioned from some players.

James Brown for me brought great energy from the bench and a lot of fight when it was needed. Whilst brambanis goal kicking was excellent we restricted a very good team to tries out wide which again showed great promise.
Enjoyed the game, enjoyed the effort and thought Andy Ackers looked very useful running from the play the ball. something which I think will develop.
I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.

I agree Mark.Jordan Burke seems to me to be waisted at full back but the again I believe he prefers full back

Thought well deserved 1 point today great first half by the lions, Eagles upped the pace in the second half and a couple of penalties and awful refereeing decisions cost us dear there goal kicking was the sucker blow today great effort from the players today though

Yes, I thought you deserved a losing bonus point today, Penny had hard luck just at the end of the game.....I think you will only get better as the season progresses, you seem to have thrown a good team, with lots of skill and spirit together.....Good Luck

I fear if Kevin keeps it up Mr Smith will take him back

I thought the team played really well yesterday and improved from the Halifax game, we have played 2 teams who will be in the mix and we have give them both a good game. We look like a team who is managed by Watto, we are organised well drilled and looks like there is good atmosphere in camp.
I wanted Watto in charge of the team and got my wish and even though we have not won yet things look like they are heading in the right direction, I think we will get our first win on Sunday at Workington.
I am very impressed with Ackers at 9, he looks like a live wire from the ruck area and always using runners. As I am impressed with all the players who Watto as signed this season.

I know it's early doors, but Workington is a MUST win game.
COME ON YOU LIONS!
