I agree rossco123. We didnt play to our potential against them a few weeks ago so with a few players back we could make the game a bit more interesting. I also agree with you on lowlife.... I mean lowefield, although im not sure if he would be made welcome at their home games after his own fans turned on him after some of his ridiculous comments.

I wonder if the Fev fans will behave themselves better at home? After all you don't s**t in your own back yard.

Will there be a supporters coach or will it be fans travelling in cars

I believe the supporters club bus is close to full. They pick me up near Swinton. I expect we will have a few in cars as well. We usually have a good following at away games - over 100 anyway, but the news that we will not be at full strength might put some off.

Thought I read in Rugby paper that your injured players would be fit for Fev; Any case I hope they do come through and we see a thrilling cup-tie;

They might be fit Phil but Clive is talking about giving some of the "fringe" players a game. Looks like staying in the division is far more important than the Challenge cup. I can understand that but it is disappointing to me as I love the Challenge cup. You never know though, the players that come in will be wanting to hold onto the shirts. There will be no lack of effort. I am looking forward to visiting Fev again. It was the second RL ground I ever visited, in 1973 Challenge cup .v. Salford. I've seen Salford there many times, and a couple of times with Celtic Crusaders (Remember Jamie Benn's last minute drop goal winner) but last time I was there Swinton won a play off fixture. I was timekeeper there once as  well when Eccles played you in the Challenge cup. Me and all from Eccles were treated brilliantly that day.

You'll see a bit of a difference Celtic Rooster with the new stands going up; The volunteers are doing a great job and we are all proud of them; Seeing Swinton win there was your lucky day I believe that is their only victory there since 1963; Swinton had a great side in the early sixties and Fev used to take some heavy beatings on their ground; Clive might be using a bit of kidology to get Fev off guard; Anyhow hope you enjoy your visit but not result wise;

We can't afford anymore injures playing in a comp you are not going to win . With 5 going  down the league is the most important we could spend years trying to get out of champ 1 if we were to drop . The higher up the table the better as there is no guarantee of the the RFL not relagating 6 if another French team comes to the table with French TV money . Play the fringe players keep everyone else for Donny away the week after as 3 points there is a hell of  a lot more important than a comp u have no realistic chance of getting through the next round  never mind winning

I can see your reasoning but I think we can win this round and perhaps draw a Super League team in the next round and attract more supporters and potentially earn some income (no offence to Featherstone Rovers intended). I hope we go with the intention to win and win well.

I'm sure you'll come to Fev to win; No players go out to lose; Fev realistically have no chance of getting to Wembley..but hey tell that to Castleford and Wigan in 2012 when they visited Post Office Road;
