Hi Everyone

 

Hope to see you all down at The Leigh Sports Village next weekend where the match will celebrate Swinton winning the Championship trophy fifty-years ago and players from that era will be at the game for a special get together.

 

Also we will have a limited edition special programme on sale  £ 2.50 with the Rampant Lion logo on the front.

 

 

See you all there

 

Thank You

 

Ian Rigg

Media Manager

Swinton Lions

I've no doubt we'll be there in good numbers.

I like the ground / atmosphere when Leigh aren't there but it would be good to see you lot with your own ground soon.

Guess what! I'm going for a big win for the Dogs

Lions 10 - Dogs 28

Got to love your optimism PM but Batley scoring 28 points at this present time

would constitute a minor miracle.

A tight affair but a loss I'm afraid.
20-18

Swinton have managed to keep games close this season (with the exception of Leigh) but have struggled to get wins.

 

There have been way too many penalties/unforced errors (lost last week away at Whitehaven by 4 points with a penalty count of 13-3 against them) but have looked like quite a good team when it clicks going forward. A strong pack keeping them in the game.

 

Ignoring the Leigh defeat, Swinton have 5 bonus points from the other 8 defeats losing the others by 14 (Sheffield-H), 14 (Featherstone-A) and 15 (Rochdale)

 

No idea what to expect from them or Batley on Sunday...

The secret is in keeping O'Brien (one of those DR players!) quiet. Give him any time or space and he'll cut you to shreds. A cracking player in my book.

Swinton aren't the best defensive side in the league but they are pretty good on attack with a fair bit of pace.

Could be a long afternoon for us then.

If we can keep the game tight we have a chance, if they score 20 or more we wont get close to that.

If you move the ball wide you will win we dont score many tries our attack is ordinary to say the least. With O,Brian dictating i think its a Swinton win for me and a 5th defeat on the bounce for us . Sad to say but i go Swinton 22 Dogs 14. I hope we get a bonus point.

If we build on eagles result we can scrape it and limp to a tight victory.

Another low-scorer.  Can't be there due to other commitments, but a 16-14 win for Swinton.

A season definer for me. The further blow to confidence of a defeat to a team we blew away there last season would be really damaging for players and fans alike.
Barring Miles for Patterson, Last weeks 17 should form the basis of the rest of the season, with Blacky hopefully fit for the year.
Much pessimism on here, but I believe the players will realise this is a must win, and deliver.

Careful Mark, we arent allowed to mention players and their ability on here for fear of upsetting people.

Just out of curiosity and taking notice of super leagues recent over reference to kickers conversion success rate- what is pattersons.
Wonder if eaton can tear himself away from headingley to motivate and brief our kicker

He made a pretty good job of it against Dewsbury.

Well let's be realistic here, questioning and/or bagging an individual players ability on a public forum doesn't help does it?

 I do not agree with insulting a player but commenting on the display/form of a player whether good or bad is part of the game and people are entitled to there opinion. The best argument against any criticism is an improved performances on the field.
