At the last league meeting I attended the London Skolars rep (plus 1 or 2 others) felt that there were TOO MANY league fixtures! It was actually quite funny when Ralph Rimmer of the RFL asked Skolars if they actually wanted to play any games! But joking apart I agree it's not ideal, but at least the cup competition is an interesting sideline. Incidentally I understand that only the first round is regionalised , & from the quarters it's an open draw.

We were really struggling with knocks and injuries even before the game kicked off. True we didnt help ourselves at times but Leigh are a quality side. In fact Leigh are the only team to beat us comprehensively this season so let's not be too downhearted. We are planning for next season and that's when the current set up will be rightly judged. Keep the faith.

There's been several updates since the Legion meeting & there's no hidden agenda. MK has no interest in Swinton RLFC without approval of his town centre plans. MK met his 30 June deadline with the council, but we don't expect any further info until council returns from recess in September. Any further meeting with MK or his reps is pointless in the meantime. It seems the underlying insinuation is that we're not taking the MK situation seriously, which is far from the truth.

I've got some great quotes from the lads and they'll be added to the website story later.

Immense credit to the head coach by the way. He's the bloke at the coal face selling his vision of the team for next season. The BOD is just trying to give him the tools & backing to do just that. A united Swinton of players/coaches/fans/Management team is the only way forward.
