Two in, one out at Swinton

Post by josie andrews » Thu Jun 06, 2019 5:20 pm

Swinton Lions have completed the signings of Richard Lepori and Sammy Kibula.

Italy international Lepori was a free agent having last appeared for Rochdale but has now linked up with Stuart Littler’s side.

Meanwhile, prop Sammy Kibula has also joined the Lions on an initial one-month loan from Wigan.

The forward has spent time on loan at Dewsbury but has now joined forces with the Lions.

Swinton have also confirmed the departure of Daley Williams.

Played against Lepori when I was between 14-16. Fastest and most powerful winger I have ever come across by a country mile. Very long time ago now though!

I think he has potential to be a very good prop and has good skills off loading plus a very big lad, he could come back to haunt us

Think you’re looking way too much into it. They have completed the signing of Kibula on loan...

Could come back to haunt us if we let him go or we have let him go?
