Swinton Lions 26-22 Workington Town

In a tight match where a two score advantage was the widest margin between the sides, Swinton came out on top against fellow strugglers Workington Town. It was a fast-paced start as both sides registered tries inside eight minutes. Gabriel Fell was first over the line of the Lions before Workington full-back Jack Murphy responded with a try of his own just a couple of minutes later. Stuart Littler and Rhodri Lloyd both crossed the whitewash for Swinton in the first half as their side went 12 points up after 20 minutes. Chris Murphy cut into Swinton’s lead with a try for the visitors but it was the Lions who finished the half in strong fashion courtesy of a Liam Marshall score. In the opening seven minutes of the second half, Workington had overturned a ten point deficit with interest as Graeme Mattinson and Jarrod Sammut both touched down for the Cumbrians. A two point lead was now on show for Phil Veivers’ side but, with 13 minutes left of the tie, it was Swinton who had the final say thanks to Chris Atkin’s winner.
