Can't see us winning at Leigh to be honest, though Joe Keyes apparently came through last night's reserve game Ok and if there are no flare-ups from that there are suggestions he may play on Sunday. With young Milnes on the sidelines for a few weeks he would make a tremendous difference alongside Jordan Lilley. It would also mean we could leave Mattie Wildie at hooker. We're still definite second favourites though, what ever.

Leigh v Bradford is huge for any t3 ambitions either club have. Could go either way but our pack is looking balanced, and Thompson comes into the mix. We lack pace on the wings but our defence at home allows little to get round us

You are a very formidable team at home, not many get the points at your place. I can't see you past losing and top 4 (minimum).

A win on Sunday should see us make the top 5 IMO

Well Leigh are red hot favourites for this one.  The way we're playing we've got 20 points in us max.  So unless we can keep Leigh under than then it's going to be a tricky afternoon.

If Leigh don't make the five then it'll be interesting to see what Desgy does this time round.

You lot gave us a heart attack when we played earlier in the season ! There is always a possibility of another upset as we're playing a couple of 18yr olds from the broncos as we are missing rather a few players at the moment (and Toronto next week would need a miracle for us to win)

I think he`ll stay whichever way the season pans out.I`ve been impressed with the results this season ,seeing as we didn`t have a team last November.Hopefully another good crowd on Sunday with plenty of Bulls to make for a great atmosphere.


We`re on a road to Nowhere.......................

Sensational result for Swinton. We've seemed to cause Toulouse problems nearly every time we have faced them for some reason and ought to have beaten them at home earlier in the season. Surely we will get Team of the Week for the first time in years!

Great result for Swinton. They have pushed a few of the "Higher" teams close this season. Under Andy Mazey , the Swinton club seem to be well run and have a good future. Hopefully they will get to play in a Stadium in the Swinton area one day.
