I hope you're right SB. I hoped we'd kick on after Widnes and then Donny happened 😳

Don't underestimate this Swinton side - they seem to be playing a better brand of footbal this season and have been scoring freely. They may have been favourites to go down before the start of the season (I was one who tipped them to do so) but they are no longer anybody's pushover.

Should be a good game.


Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

Maybe it is because they have a lot of sl  dual reg players in the team.  Think they are dr with saints.

I could be wrong but I thought they were dual registered with Wigan, as part of the Hankinson deal? Saints are with Leigh.

Feeling confident about this one after last night. Up hill first half then batter them down hill second half. It will be more energy sapping running up the hill if it's as hot as today.  So doggie 30   lions 12

If it is warm as this tomorrow and all the stamina taken out of the lads on Friday, I can see a hard slog and not many points in it, but I'll go for a Batley win if even  by 1 point.

Lillycrop limped off  and Manning was out on his feet.

Scott, Rettie, Wood, Galbraith, Campbell, Jouffret, Brambani, Gledhill, Leak, Ward, Downs, Brown, Brearley.

Going for power from the off, try to subdue them early, then let Everett and Joe and Lewis take over, Butterworth to spell Leaky with similar effect .

Personally don’t think you can leave Smeaton out after Friday. Had probably his best game this season and helped Dom defensively when Dewsbury tried to get Ryder to run at Dom. 

Then one of Brev or Brierley to miss out in the second row.
