Big middle Gavin Bennion will need no introduction to Swinton fans as we welcome him back to Heywood Road!

Gavin made his original debut for the Lions back in 2013 whilst on DR from Warrington, and he  returned to us in 2018 on a permanent deal following spells at Halifax and Salford. The Covid situation in 2020 did of course abruptly curtail matters for everyone, but post-pandemic he spent two seasons with local rivals Rochdale Hornets.

Still only 28 years old, 6 foot 4 inches tall Gavin has undoubted class which has already been proven at Championship level, particularly when he scored 9 tries in 26 appearances for Swinton during the 2019 season.

Gavin has also featured of course for Wales during the current World Cup, and is now eager for another dig at the Championship!

Gavin was interviewed earlier this week when he called in at our AJ Bell Stadium training base. Hear what he had to say about returning to the club!
