“I hope to see plenty of Swinton fans show their support and make the trip to Heywood Road in what should be an exciting round two clash.
“Fans travelled in great numbers and with amazing voice during the pre-season period and to Sheffield for round one of the year, and I can’t wait to play back in-front of the home crowd.
“We as a team would also like to send our best wishes to teammate Will Hope, who unfortunately sustained an injury against Sheffield Eagles.”
