Sundays Game

54 posts in this topic

Spent most of the last couple of weeks in Cornwall (need to get my timing better) - seems a long time since our win at North Wales but a lot can happen in 2 weeks - 2 more wins and Watto leaving so onto Sunday and hopefully to get our fourth win on the trot which could make a massive difference to our season - I'm sure that following the regrettable loss of Ian to Salford the lads are even more gelled together and carry our current form into Sunday.

Watto will be there on Sunday to cheer us on .  I asked him if he was interested in signing on loan until the end of the season but he said he was going to put his feet up !!.

Do you think he'd come on the field for a round of applause Riggy? A bit of an official goodbye?

Gaz O'Brien named in Wire's 19 man squad for Sunday. Looks like we're gonna need the 'mystery' half back after all!

Maybe.  I will ask the powers that be.

Town, according to the table stats, have the fourth meanest defense in the Championship thus far- so even prior to Ian Watson's departure the Lions were going to have their work cut out getting across the whitewash. If we've no one to find the gaps have we got the gas anywhere to run round them?

Town also have the worst attack it would seem ( or do they have a terrible kicker?) in the entire league. They've picked up the most bonus points though. 

Everything indicates a close 'un!

Oh dear - that is not good news as he has proved a real threat in the last few games and was forming a good partnership with Watson.

our kicker is good it's our ability to cross the whitewash dictating where we are in the league. If we could turn our possession into points we would be well clear of the drop zone. Although it has picked up considerably in our last few games against the big boys (we scored 30 away at fax). It will be very close with you in form and over our last few games we've beaten fev, got beat by fax by 2 and pushed Leigh all the way.

I'd say it's both , but our attacking on plays 1-5 under PV is improving . Now we need play 6 to catch up with it .

We're playing some decent expansive rugby lately , but to often we lack the nous to get rewards for it. I see a close game as well , and one both can feel confident of wining .

Whoever plays anywhere on the park tomorrow in a blue shirt, they'll be playing for Swinton. Our team, your team, my bloody team! So let's get behind 'em!

This game is massive! Win by 13+ and we go above Worky on the ladder!

The lads need our support, the lads deserve our support, so let's do our bit to keep us in the Championship!

COME ON YOU LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spelly.

Jordan Burke/Chris Atkin sounds good - just hope it doesn't take all game long for them to gel and get things happening.

 

Jordan Burke's done a terrific holding job on the wing - composure under the high ball had to be shown from someone and he's shown it in spades from the games i've seen .

In a close game, which this could well be, kicking goals will be important. O'Brien has been doing that job too so I hope whoever is to take over that role has been doing extra practice this week.

Mick nanyn for goal kicks?? Seems obvious but peet if in team also. I just think it might by a lot of one man rugby today as we lack our main two player makers although ackers is immense and both Burke and atkin can play anywhere I feel. It's going to be a game of territory

Lions by 4

Mom ackers

Crowd 400

If I didn't know better I'd say we are being sabotaged. I know that's not true but from the outside looking in that's what it looks like.

Great effort I believe to get back in the game 32-24, with all that's happened this week watto, new coach, players out players in very unsettling for the team but 1 point great against the inform team, damn why do I have to work Sunday

Shame we Didnt take our chances in the first half particularly in the first twenty minutes when it was a real arm wrestle.A spirited fight back but obvious that Town had switched off with the points in the bag.On the whole perhaps the defeat not a big surprise in view of all the behind the scenes turmoil that has occurred this week.

Well put

Atkin a real stand out player for me

Weak on our wings

Otherwise an unsurprisingly disorganized effort
