Doncaster next sunday


Recommended Posts


Good performance again without being superb. Controlled the game very well aside from a 5 min spell in the first half where they scored.

Individually I thought Hewitt, Joy and Hawkyard were superb. Hewitt has been cracking for the last 6 weeks controlling the team but also taking on the line when necessary as shown with his try. Hawkyard kept up his super season whilst that was Phil's best game since he did his shoulder in 2017.

Of the rest Whittel kept up his excellent end of the season and scored a really important try again. Langtree very good as usual but I didn't think worthy of MOTM. McComb and Leeming did plenty of work again in the centres.

Enjoy another week off then ready for one last massive game.

A month in France followed by a trip to Australia for my daughter's wedding means that this was the first match I have seen for some time.  An excellent performance and I agree that the score flattered Doncaster.  22 - 6 was a better indicator.  As for the crowd, sadly that is down to the ground and the weather.  It's a depressing stadium at best and in the rain even more so.  Sadly, the weather was at its worst around the time that locals would be making up their mind on whether to go down or not.  Indeed it was due to my 13 year old son's insistence that we were there.  Glad he persuaded me.

Well done Oldham - best of luck for the final and hope to see you back in the Championship next season - although I am not sure where or who we will be next season (from a Swinton fan).

Me for one I hope you'll be Swinton Lions.
