Thoughts ahead of this one? Swinton play quite an attacking style IIRC. They also beat Toulouse away and of the lower placed sides seem to be one of the better ones. They ground out a win over Batley at the weekend and will be dangerous if taken lightly.

No complacency, we're in full momentum now, should hopefully have Crossley back and we're practically at a fully fit squad with some key players in red hot form. Can't see anything but a Bulls win.

Swinton are in good form so we can't afford to take this lightly as you say. Sure Kear will be drumming it into them. It will be the most Bradford thing ever beating Toulouse in Toulouse, then losing to Swinton at home.

Discipline will be key. We know what sort of game it will be. Niggly, rough, tough. Just got to keep our heads and we should come out comfortable winners as we're the better side.

Wonder if Kear will go same again or just rest one or two after the heorics of last week. Might be worth bringing in one or two fresh bodies just to bring in some energy. It was a fantastic win on Saturday and no one deserves to be dropped. But just don't want us suffering a hang over and looking lethargic. I'd be tempted to bring in Doyle & Storton.

It's got 'Whacking Great Banana Skin' written all over it! Yes a decent run recently but it's not long since we got an absolute d!cking from Leigh.

Swinton will view us as getting all 'Bertie Big Ballocks' so will doubly be up for it, will disrupt as much as possible and generally be out to wind up so if we have one ounce of arrogance about us this week we'll have our kegs round our ankles before you can say bye bye top 5.

Let's hope that spirit is back for good!

I think its likely Crossley will return to the fold and I'd expect Bustin to drop out (he looked well out of shape on Saturday leaving the majority of the gaps that Toulouse exposed in that second 20min spell), so expect us to lose some of that momentum we've generated in the middle of the field these last two games.

I think Storton might have a chance coming back in if he's inclined to give someone a rest but thats not really Kear's style.
Don't think i'm biased...
...i'm just very narrow minded!!!!!!!

Green said in a recent interview hed be back for the york game and i think Evans is still 3 weeks away.

Crossley will obviously be back in if fit
Joe Brown travelled to Toulouse so u wonder if he will come in as well?
Would it be a bit risky giving Webster a week of to ensure hes there for the massive game at York the week after? (id like to think we could beat Swinton with out him)
I guess it would be pretty harsh dropping people after the last few weeks performances but its a great headache to have.
