Is anyone even remotely interested in these games now?

Sheffield's record against Batley this season is two losses with a net deficit of more than 100 points. Can't see that chnaging this week or next.

Beaten Toulouse already this year would be nice to beat them again.......come on you lions...... 

Could be the case again, after being down 26-6 at halftime, they have fought back to 32-30

FT Toulouse 38-34 Swinton

Looked like a decent away following by Swinton looking at the Lions' website.

You'd have to say that Swinton have bounced back well from a major off the field crisis plus losing their star player and head coach to Hull KR and Fev respectively.

Deserves respect I reckon.

Cracking entertainment.

About 100 Swinton fans in great voice who went with the players to the local bars after the game, great ambiance which is good to see.

Don't know how to sum up the game really. Toulouse rested big players plus Stan Robin has an injury but the replacements did ok when Ford was on the pitch. He got a yellow on 57 minutes and didn't come back which let the Lions in for a load of points which made the contest more exciting.

Swinton threw the ball about and just went for it, they looked a slick side orchestrated by Woods and White but not a bad performance on the pitch.
