dual reg getting some criticism on the radio. yes it isn't ideal if lads training all week get their noses pushed out by SL players but i don't think that's how it will be used it will be to bring players in should teams be struggling through injuries.

I would have thought 2 , but to do it with one and that being a winger ... Against 9 !!!! I bow down to Charlo , he knows best and boy did we show that fitness , unity and passion count for so much . You can't throw a team together like fantasy rugby league , that was poor form and got what it deserved.

Town (and Widnes) used the system as it is supposed to be used. Town coach selecting his team finds himself short of a winger. Widnes had offered us the use of 2 forwards and a back and as Widnesrlfc says earlier in this thread, Hulme is a centre rather than a winger, but he was probably our only option for the wing, so we play him (and by all acounts he did a good job). Well done everyone.

Thanks Lee, what went wrong today at Hunslet? Didn't expect that scoreline.

i was expecting to get beat Keith but a bonus point at least.....a bit shocked to be honest although in both pre-season games we looked very very poor in my eyes....no new moves in attack and very predictable...something will need to change and fast or we will be playing catchup from early doors mate

Just got home, perhaps one of the best games I've seen for ages. Town, were the fittest, smartest and most together team. Exciting prospect in young Phillips, but all the team were men of the match. Super sound in defence and great going forward. I saw the real Lupton today! Well done to all the team, including the background staff. A team that played for each other won the day.

What a bloody superb win, and one that shouldn't be underestimated. Any win on first day is a good one, it sets a tone for the season. Bit to win away with players missing in a better league against a team flouting the rules is fantastic. Well done to all involved, man I'm excited for this season. Can't wait to see how we do against fax, give us an idea as to how things are going to go at home.

Just in passing, Swinton played all three DR players, Wood, Laithwaite and McCarthy. Town made them look ordinary! They also used all six recent signings from Warrington plus Liam Hulme who signed from Warrington in October.

Walne , Dowes and the Thackrinator are gonna be huge for us this year .. Add Acton who looks a total beast and we've got loads

of grunt to terrorise teams with . Young Callum then Matty will have a field day ! Halifax in our upgraded stadium should be bouncing ! Needs to be sold to the rafters to get them flocking in . But on the Swinton Wolves forum they were just two average teams today ...
