I don't think we did take Swinton lightly. Maybe the fans thought we would win by a few more but Swinton surprised me and to say you only got close to us because we took you lightly is doing yourselves an injustice. I think you're wide of the mark saying we were lucky to win though, your goal line defence wasn't good enough to keep us out and we scored two more tries than yourselves, despite handing you one on a plate.

You've got a few good players, I'Anson makes you tick quite effectively and the centre who was wearing number four was outstanding I thought, no idea how Penney got the man of the match in front of him.

As far as we're concerned it wasn't a vintage performance but we got the job done. Always managed to keep our noses in front once we hit the lead which was important I thought.

I didn't think the ref had too bad a game despite the incessant whinging from some Swinton supporters. Claiming offside after EVERY tackle and a forward pass at least once every set was becoming incredibly tiresome.

Swinton aren't far off in my opinion, but you're down there for a reason, maybe you need to match your home form on the road? I don't know, hopefully the new ground will put some wind in your sails.

Brambani limped off for us which is a worry.

Penny 5 played very well for Swinton.
Mr Hewer with a skin colour between David Dickenson and Jodie Marsh was his usual bad self for both sides but perhaps a better referee may have put the first half tackle on Misi.

My Eagles motm Nozzer for yet another selfless hardworking performance.

In addition the curse of Cutts Travel has been laid to rest (albeit a very minor blip) which makes me wonder whether HL is actually the true Mr Jinx.

The blip was missing the M1 exit and doing an almost complete circuit of the roundabout I say almost because we actually went back onto the M62 LOL

Yes the being offside at every tackle and the continuous forward passing was tiresome but despite that I'd say you lot just about deserved the win
We are half a season of experience away from beating the likes of yourselves and our results against all the top sides prove it. Indeed we could have won yesterday uf we hadn't given the ball away so much,but indeed thats as much as the difference was yesterday that little lack of experience.
Sheffield are a very strong team with no weaknesses from 1 to 17.
I certainly enjoyed the match.

What makes you think Swinton were taken lightly ? It was pretty much the same team as last week. We didn't rest anybody. :roll:

I saw Swinton play Halifax the other week and narrowly (and unluckily) lose so I wasn't taking anything for granted. I think Swinton are a far better team than either York or Hunslet. It has to be said that the two interception tries we gave away, plus missing two relatively easy kicks, did make the score look closer than it should have been, but Swinton jumped on our mistakes, and credit to them. I think the point about experience is very valid. We struggled the first couple of seasons in this division. I thought all in all it was a very entertaining game, if a little nerve wracking for us.
