  1. Top performance last week Ian - some great rugby with ball in hand - as you say massive game and massive weekend with games elsewhere
  2. You seem to have a problem with us (Swinton) - you continue to referr to us as the worst team you've played this year since we obviously committed the crime of managing to draw with you at Derwent Park in a very poor game by both sides - that was one game you shouldn't judge us on - I wouldn't judge Workington on that game as some of your results have proved - we beat you at home and currently have 4 more points than you - we cant be that poor - anything can happen in the next 7 games, none of the bottom 6 teams are safe - I think we will win another game as I think all the teams will - why would sending us down in particular make you happy??
  3. It is one of the debatable points of whether to go for 'the 2' , we all will have our own views - it obviously depends on the current scoreline and also a teams confidence and ambition in scoring tries. As for '1 point lost or 1 point won I would say the game could have gone either way and any point from Derwent Park has always been difficult and as I said in my previous post the 1 point could be precious come end of season - I am confident we will stay up by more than that though.
  4. Very poor game today - two poor performances but well done to the lads for yet again going to the final whistle - could be a very invaluable point - Workington fans commenting on us on their forum ???
  5. Come on you Workington fans - you shouldn't be having a go at the opposition today - you didn't win because your performance wasn't good enough and we didn't win because our performance wasn't good enough - it was a very poor game with two very poor performances and in my opinion a draw was a fair result - we know how poor we were today but it was enough to get a point - never easy at Derwent Park and could prove to be invaluable at the end of the season
  6. Not wishing to be negative but not really expecting a result next week, one thing for sure, is that I will be going to Featherstone feeling proud and after our wins at Halifax and Batley our lads could do it with a good performance - but Featherstone will be looking to bounce back after their game yesterday
  7. Yes Colin - the Sky camera was behind the touch judges and the ball seemed to be drifting away at the time it sailed over the post - of course on what influenced the tv coverage was the forthright options of the commentators and after all is said and done the people in the best position are the touch judges - anyhow it wouldn't have altered the result we would have simply scored another try instead of taking the drop goal ???
  8. What a brilliant comeback - first half just didn't turn up - totally differrenet performance second half and the game could have gone either way at the end - but for a team to overturn a 20-0 half time deficit they deserve the win. Obviously in such a close game always going to be points of controversy - obstructions/groundings and then finally 'the conversion' - from the Swinton end you couldn't guess but having looked at it a few times on my sky recording it could have gone either way - could all the officials have got it wrong (ha ha maybe) - naturally the oldham fans/coach and kicker are going to think otherwise but as we Swinton fans know only too well these things happen in all games. Great 2 points for us and a long way to go yet but I do think both Oldham and ourselves will stay up
  9. Will be there
  10. What can you say about a game like that - obviously the lads didn't have my mindset at Half Time - unbelievable comeback and never say die attitude and all credit to Whitehaven on their effort
  11. This was always going to be a game we need to win if we are to stay up and on current form we should, but as we all know all games in this league are going to be tough - the away wins at Halifax and Batley are massive bonuses and fully deserved. If the lads stick to our strengths using our pace and handling ability we should be okay. Really looking forward to the day.
  12. No problems with me Chairman, I'm sure you said what you said after what must have been a disappointing result for you - for us it was a great and surprising result against one of the better teams in the league -let us enjoy our days in the sun - we are fighting for staying in this league and competing with teams like Batley
  13. Your quote Swinton spent the entire second half spoiling and time-wasting. If that's their modus operandi for winning games, fair play to them, but it was like watching paint dry and I'm glad we only have to watch that twice in a season. and you never disrespect any team??? - and believe you me I was watching the game with my full attention - I know this is a forum and we all are entitled to our views but would suggest you choose your word better if you do not intend to get under people skin
  14. Glad to see some of your fellow supporters have the decency to show respect for a team that were far better on the day - threw the ball about more than Batley did, defended better than Batley did and like Batley did got penalised for some offences and not for others - please don't refer me your your post 30 - your remarks above are totally disrespectful especially from a Rugby League fan.
  15. Tend to neglect this forum too much with the our growing Facebook page - but today was, in my opinion, our best performance of the season - quality flowing rugby, top tries and everyone of the lads playing well but have to say Chris Atkin is showing real class at the moment - lets just keep it going - great time to be a Lions fan, but then it always is.
