For Swinton read Manchester

Swinton have applied to the RFL to change their name to Manchester Lions.
I remember them being a decent side back in the early 60s, when their ground, Station Road, was actually in Swinton, but they’ve had a number of homes this last 20 years, so maybe no surprise seeing them, with a last throw of the dice and a name change, trying to capitalise on the Manchester name to attract a new audience.

They were RL champions in 62/63 and 63/64.
