good to have competition for the centre spots. Wiper and Low got better as last season progressed and both looked sharp in pre season friendlies but I think Shaw is a step up from that.

Many Swinton fans regard Mort as the best kicker seen since Ken Gowers....to pick Shaw to kick ahead of him would be crazy

I liked Ryan Shaw...unlike some Swinton fans who found his weak defence unforgivable. He is potentially a top player. Good luck to him at Barrow.

And to Morty too...a classy player and he can fly too when put in a gap.

Mark, Ian's placekicking last sunday in a swirling gusty breeze was superb and he looks very handy going forward. Good under the high ball as well.

Shaw when playing for Barrow literally missed about 2 kicks the whole time he was here.

Haven't seen Mort enough to comment tbf but there's no doubt they are both outstanding kickers.

Having seen Mort and Shaw over the last few seasons I would suggest that Ian Morts goal kicking is the best I have ever witnessed and was a very good fullback as well with safe hands and a turn of pace. In his last season at the Lions 2012 he was used more as a winger when Richie Hawkyard return to fullback but suffered a nasty facial injury which kept him out some while - this all affected his try scoring but never his goal kicking completion rate. 

 

Swinton Lions records points in a season - Season 2011 - 119 goals -  25 tries - 338 points. 292 of those points were in the 20 league games - he was like a machine.

 

Best of luck to you.

You've got a good un in Morty

Both our full backs are now injured so we turn to Warrington for Matty Russell...on dual reg

Let the fun debate begin again!

You won't find any debate from most on using dual reg to fill in for injured players, but I don't think that was how it was being used last year by some.
