    Fund raising

    At Swinton we set up the Pride Builder fund. Cash is raised by supporters monthly standing orders ( no minimum) it forms a steady stream of income for the club (monthly) and the club is restricted to using it for players wages. The idea was a reaction to performances and to allow the supporters to have a direct influence on the pitch and their contribution to be visible (not sucked into any black holes elsewhere). Seems quite popular and whilst last year had limited impact I understand it is growing and it will allow us to compete for players in the market.

    Salford. Trouble at mill.

    If Salford did drop out then just leave Superleague at 11 teams and earn the right to be in it next year. Let London, Leigh and Toronto fight for it. Always complaining about too many games so let them all have a bye week and run a middle 7’s

    Superb win Hornets

    Close but if oldham win Swinton are not relegated. A win at Toulouse with Dewsbury beating Oldham should see Swinton safe whatever the result next week. A draw next week I predict !

    I have copied your query onto the Swinton Lions Family - Facebook page. That is the place that the Swinton Fans communicate so might be worth a look.

    Remaining games

    All charges are fully disclosed on RFL website "Opponent scores a try and the player runs in and makes unnecessary contact with the opponent. The player had a clear view of the opponent scoring but continues to run in aggressively and jumps – with his knee extended – into the opponent making forceful contact. The opponent spins in an effort to avoid the contact. This was an unnecessary act that had the potential for serious injury and is graded at Grade B" from RFL disciplinary website. Apparently he pleaded guilty (by email) and did not attend hearing.

    Swinton v Hornets

    Very pleased to see Lloyd back too. Was a tough uncompromising "game" today with very little rugby played by either team but the flowing move from Lloyd was probably the highlight.

    Lack of discipline costs us again!

    Just checked on the RFL website and you have had 13 incidents reported this year - (compare to Swintons 6) most of which resulted in no charge as the sin bin or sending off was sufficient. Selective statistics only undermine your case. I would suggest you do have an issue based on the anecdotal evidence from the comments on your own forums (and not just based on the Swinton game)
