Some astute readers may have spotted the absence of references to Swinton Rugby League Club in this blog this season. There is a reason. The pain is too great and I seem to have missed every game we have won. Tonight there was a bonus. Having been soundly thrashed by Halifax in the previous round, it was discovered that Halifax had fielded an ineligible player. Halifax were disqualified and Swinton went through to play for a place in the quarter finals this evening and were soundly thrashed by Batley. 6 -58.* And it was one of the better performances of a season where the defence has disappeared. Unless some miracles happen, don't expect too many other posts.
*BBC got the score wrong.
