Swinton Lions Survive Workington Challenge to Retain Championship Place





A place in the Championship was up for grabs as Leon Pryce’s Workington Town travelled down the M6 to take on Stuart Littler’s Swinton Lions in the last game of the domestic season. Having finished bottom of the Championship ladder the Lions knew that they would be up against as they welcomed the side who pushed York and Bradford all the way in Championship One and now hoped to join them in the second tier next season.
This crucial game was being held at Swintons home ground of Haywood Road in Sale as the lower division side were forced to travel. The two sides last met over two years ago when Swinton won by 19-12, but with Swinton not having won in their last four, this was anyones game as the Lions took on the Marras.

Some of their fans are slagging the rfl off about it. Despite the fact they effectively got another bite at the cherry thanks to their club voting along with the greedy super duper league and some other lap dog league 1 and champ clubs voting for this restructure.

Think the bench was made up with players with 'niggling injuries', 3 were used, 1 was not.
