I have always fancied a proper polo shirt in the "style" of a retro kit.
When the 2013 kit came along I thought I had got just that but ultimately it is still a rugby Jersey (for Blue Monkey!) and therefore not always appropriate (perfect for the match/house/playing sport etc) but at my age, not for the pub on a satuday evening etc.
I was thinking like this picture course (in swinton colours). Lose the polo player (!!!copyright alert!!!) and with perhaps ("Lions") in subtle lettering across the shoulders or sleeve (or perhaps a lion badge on one sleeve and a small "since 1866" on the other ?)
I would look the bees knees at the garden parties/beer garden/pub/dress down at work!
PS - I would certainly not be including utility pockets for glasses, screwdriver,fags and emergency torch!
Nothing new to me on Sunday, though a much improved performance on Batley. - no wingers, no centres - Thought we were fortunate that Doncaster drove up the middle and were very predictable (might even say boring!) - second half and they got the ball out wide (either through hands or a kick) and strolled in twice to seal it.
Three hookers, two full backs on the wings, no centres/wingers - the team is patched together and different every week (and DR is not to blame for that one).
Never felt in "control" of the game at any time but I was also disappointed in Doncaster who, given their league position looked only looked solid and rather one dimensional. That is the way to win games though and there is a lesson in just doing the basics in this league. (OR a few quid in the refs pocket of course )
I think you saw one of the survivors today, and it was Hornets.!!
And I genuinely hope I am wrong. On what I saw, I saw nothing but swinton wasting an opportunity to get points. If a team is to stay up over swinton then I hope it is rochdale, "home of the co-operation"
