Discuss the game here!

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

This will be a true sign of how far we've come - a win puts us firmly in the driving seat for the playoffs, a loss lets Crusaders right back in it.

I think we should have enough though and will win by 14
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

The fancy dans of castleford will struggle with the basic environs of the gnoll, and the crusaders are discovering the welsh fighting spirit despite their non-welsh origins. The small pitch will see the silky skills of the northern sophisticates nullufied, the basic food and flavoursome beer will distract the prawn sandwich munching, rhubarb growing cas fans, sammuts hair will at key moments blind the oppo and crusaders will win by 3 penalty goals to 2.

Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

With the game being played on what is effectively a neutral ground and both sides needing a win, this could be very close but I'm taking Crusaders to win with typical Brian Noble borefest efficiency by 4.

Long trip for Cas, and they're on a good run having gotten into good habits, when having the usual routine of being up north.

This is different, and they should be on a come down from their derby too, Crusaders to win by 16.
Super League, Championship, the play-offs, Challenge Cup, and World Cup.

If we have any aspirations of making the playoffs then this is a must win game. I think we'll win by six points. Been away with work for a couple of weeks - really missed my RL - so looking forward to the game.

Cru Cru Crusaders!

Westerman and Widders try scorers for Cas, Hanbury and James for Crus.

I bet you could have got great odds on Crusaders winning nine games this season. Woeful and worrying, considering their form at the moment, attendance though of less than 1500. Smallest gate this season.

I think playing it at The Gnoll instead of The Racecourse Ground AND the previous incident involving Castleford will have massively affected the attendance.

When they got Noble, I thought that they would not finish bottom, however I would not have thought that they would have been pushing for a playoff place. I think everyone is starting to look at the run in's now.
Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

Yes I agree. You've got to take your hat off to Noble for achieving what he has with limited pre season preparation time.
