Swinton Lions Squad

Dewsbury Rams Squad

Match Preview


Duo missing for Lions

Swinton caretaker coach Ian Watson will be without Chris Clarke and Jordan Burke for Sunday's Kingstone Press Championship clash against Dewsbury.

Burke is expected to miss six weeks of action due to a broken thumb while Burke has an ankle problem.

However, Chas I'Anson is set to return to action on Sunday, giving Watson a timely boost as the Lions look to back up last week's win at Keighley.

The Rams racked up a 46-8 triumph against Whitehaven last time out in a performance that pleased coach Glenn Morrison.

He said: "We're probably going to run with the same squad this week.

"I was really impressed with our boys last week - they completed their sets and put on display what we've been working on in training."

He added: "Swinton are a quality side, and Richie Hawkyard is someone I've known since my Bradford days.

"Teams like that just need one win - which they got last week - and then they generally kick on from there. We'll have to take our A game."
