Wolfpack claim comfortable win at Swinton

Toronto Wolfpack claimed a comfortable win at Swinton Lions as they moved six points clear of second placed Toulouse at the top of the Championship.

The Wolfpack dominated the first half as they went 16-0 up before the half hour thanks to tries from Andrew Dixon, Ricky Leutele and Chase Stanley. All but one tries were converted by Blake Wallace.

The home side came out better in the second half and claimed the first try through Mike Butt. Rob Fairclough converted to bring the Lions back to within 10 points with 20 minutes to go.

But the Wolfpack were soon back in complete control as Leutele added his second, and then Bob Beswick got in on the act. Both tries were converted by Wallace to bring the Wolfpack out in front by 22 points.

The Lions were not done yet however as Fairclough grabbed another try back. It was unconverted however, meaning the home side would need three converted tries to get back in the game.

Any hope of a comeback for Swinton was then well and truly put to bed when Adam Sidlow became the latest Toronto player to cross. Wallace converted once again.

However, the last word would go to the hosts as Butt grabbed his second try of the afternoon. It went unconverted, but it did not matter as the game had already gone.

The Wolfpack are now edging closer towards their dream of getting into the Super League, as they continue to dominate the Championship. They welcome Dewsbury Rams to Canada next Saturday.

As for Swinton, that defeat leaves them perilously close to the bottom two, given Widnes Vikings’ recent revival. They travel to Toulouse next Saturday.
