  1. Gone to Featherstone ............so everyone is saying. Once again good luck, Watson has done a great job at Salford, sure Duffy will do the same and now lets hope Stuart get us going and the team can stay in the Championship
  2. Yes appears that Duffy has joined you - well one thing is for sure the team will be exciting on attack - only match this season when we (Swinton) failed to score any tries was at your place, so keep a good defence and you will be a force to be reckoned with - not sure he would want to bring any players with him as I imagine your squad is already pretty strong.
  3. Would appear John has been offered a position elsewhere - which he could not turn down, so good luck to John, a repeat of what happened with Ian Watson.............:(
  4. Really sorry to see John Duffy leave the club - though I guess its understandable with the league position and financial woes.........I think the teamm has played some wonderful attacking rugby this season and that is down to Duffy's coaching skills. Having sat in ear shot of him at home matches his frustration was evident when the players did not execute plans / moves as expected, but also his total commitment to the job. I for one would like to thank John for his hard work and wish him well in his next coaching role.
  5. Really surprised that your coach and staff have been sacked - I think Featherstone have played the most attractive attacking rugby of all the teams we have played this season..........its understandable why Swinton's coach has gone with our league position and financial woes - but it doesn't seem reasonable to sack your coach - but as supporters do we ever know what really goes on ?
  6. crowd funding.......
  7. Hi Rob, can you publish a link to the crown funding page ?
  8. Any predictions for Sunday............a win I hope..........
  9. It's not just next Sunday ( for both our clubs, mine being Swinton) but really all the remaining matches against each of the teams in the bottom five, reading as I do supporters' comments on Oldham's, Dewsbury's, yours and Swinton's, supporters pages, we have all seen the same thing in our teams, that being lack of consistency - which is the main factor as to why we are all stuck in the bottom five. Although looks like Dewsbury are now playing consistently well to be beating teams around them.........so they look favourites to survive.........
  10. As the song goes - "What a difference a day makes" - so well done beating Toulouse, its all change at the bottom with us ( Swinton) losing and Rochdale losing heavily at Dewsbury. So all bets are back on as to which of the bottom five will go down............and right now its too close to call which team will be joining Bradford in the Championship1...........
  11. They are beatable - so good luck from a Swinton fan..........
  12. Could not agree more and really could have been 20 points up at the break............team showed grit and determination and thankfully did not play panic rugby after Fax took the lead. It would be great to win the next 4 matches going into the 8s..........
  13. Caine Barnes looks really good - did not realise he only just turned 18...........
  14. Well done - after such a poor start to your season - certainly makes for exciting ( and worrying) times for of us supporting teams in the bottom of the table...........
  15. As a Swinton supporter I think Oldham, Rochdale, Dewsbury and Swinton are pretty much the same - in that they are inconsistent yet are capable of beating anyone on their day. So which ever team can play consistently from now will stay up. I cannot believe Bradford will win enough matches to survive and I cannot believe the RFL will expand the league. One thing is for sure, the matches to watch are between those of us trying to stay up rather that those trying to get into SuperLeague............
