Recommended Posts

From Swinton’s official website:


The wait is finally over...The 2018 Kingstone Press Championship fixtures have been announced by the Rugby Football League.

Swinton Lions will begin the new season where they left off in 2017, in the south of France as they face Toulouse Olympique in one of six games kicking off the Kingstone Press Championship across the weekend of 3rd and 4th of February 2018.

The Lions complete the regular season on 29th July with a trip to Mount Pleasant to face Batley Bulldogs in an end-of-season away double-header, following on from the previous week's trip to Leigh Centurions.

Canadian newcomers Toronto Wolfpack are welcomed to Heywood Road in Round 5 on March 4th with the long trip across the Atlantic for the reverse fixture on May 5th.

Stuart Littler lines up against his former colleague and Featherstone head coach John Duffy on both 11th March at the The LD Nutrition Stadium and 15th July at Heywood Road.

The Lions make their regular trip to Blackpool for the SummerBash event, where they will face local rivals Rochdale Hornets on Sunday 27th May.

Certainly better than last season as we do not have to play all the top 6 teams in the first 6 weeks, hopefully the team can get a few wins under its belt to kick the season off
