  1. On youtube there is the full game of Hull vs Swinton on the 21st January 1988 - the Swintom team with the likes of Tommy Frodsham, Paul Topping, Derek Bate, Gary Ainsworth, Scott Ransom, et al stunned the Hull crowd with a tremendous win. I do think we were lucky to see so many young talented players at Swinton in the 80's - I agree with Lion heart's comments wholeheartedly.
  2. Well I think the last I saw Swinton win at Widnes was the Lancashire Cup semi final in 1969 - when we went on to beat Leigh in the final. Here's hoping we can at Widnes again :)
  3. Batley were the better side today as Mark said Batley played the conditions better we switched off in the last 15mins of the first half - had we gone in 14 points down we may have had a chance but not at 20. We should have taken penalty kicks at goal in the first half rather than the tap could have come away with 6 points instead of nothing. Nice to see Ben White having a good game for you although it was against us !
  4. I couldn't go to the match yesterday - but looked like many did :) What a great start to the season, hope there weren't any serious injuries looked like Oscar had injured his right arm / elbow / shoulder ? Well done to the team and coaching staff.
  5. Well I think its a big plus that the majority of the squad have been retained and I hope that some of the younger players signed in the close season prove as a success as Ashton was. The first match away at Whitehaven will be a stern test and if the team wins there then it would be a very promising start. I think as always our half backs are key and last season Fairclough and Hansen were really good together. I am sure the pack will again compete with any team in the division. I would like to see Lloyd in the 2nd row rather than centre and possibly Thomas at full back ? I too don't know what will happen with DR Roll on February that's what I say
  6. I would agree with Robthegasman's comment - it could be a very good move for Rochdale. Still in shock that the board (all but one) resigned on mass, but that is history now.

    I would have thought the way PNG rolled over the full time, super league athletes, would have meant several Championship clubs would try to sign one or two if they could.
  8. No doubt the RFL will cancel the competition anyway - that's my prediction (however ridiculous it may sound)
  9. Seems like a pretty fair assessment to me - can't wait for the new season and I do hope Swinton survive what will now be a difficult season, good luck to all the teams really
  10. Oh yes we are still DR'd with Wigan as well
  11. I would like to see a couple of experienced centres in the squad as I prefer Lloyd in the pack. I didn't realise Oscar Thomas was on a two year deal - hopefully he can break into the team this year (maybe at full back). I also think Hansen and Fairclough had a good halfback partnership last season, so I hope that continues next season. Really pleased we have managed to retain so many players - has got be good for next season.
  12. Does anybody know how many players we have signed on for next season ?
  13. I hope its not anybody and just a rumour...……...
