Crusaders for mine. No idea about the crowd - don't know enough about Neathians and their love of league.

Crusaders RL to win by at least twenty points.

But you have to feel for the Harlequins supporters who'll have to rush from work to make this game.

Well, Assuming they finish work at 5, that gives them an hour to make a 3 hour journey (according to Google)

Not gonna happen

EDIT: And Wrexham based fans have exactly the same problem

I feel sorry for the Harlequins supporters who made arrangements for Saturday, which was the rearranged date until last Friday.

If Crusaders play like they did yesterday, they'll win by 50+. Quins don't seem to be interested any more.

Profuse apologies mate, I thought this was in Wrexham.

The crowd will be no more than 2000.

Crusaders to win, though not by as big a margin as yesterday. Crowd about 1500.

They'll be lucky to have over 1,000 there but I'm sure it will be announced as that or higher.

I, sadly, won't be there as I'll be at a sophisticated dinner party just outside Amersham.

Crusaders by 40.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

There has been one at 7pm but I don't think there has ever been one at 6pm.

There's a theory on the Wrexham FC message board that they're doing it to keep the crowd low so they can say how it's not economically viable to play down south and get out of it

The Super League record low crowd is 500 (Paris got it- forget who against) and I think there's a real chance this will be broken

Salford if I remember correctly. Even if it does then it won't be announced as such.

I'll say Crusaders 32-10 Harlequins

As for crowd, I dunno perhaps 750-1,000... it's really worrying how their crowds have "dropped off"

Leeds 10,334 --- 29/01
Wigan 6,794 --- 21/02
Catalans 6,124 --- 19/03
Huddersfield 4,127 --- 25/04
Wigan 6,075 --- 22/05
Bradford 2,979 --- 13/06
Wakefield 2,837 --- 27/06
Warrington 5,197 --- 04/07
Castleford 1,495 --- 25/07 **NEATH**
Salford 2,412 --- 01/08

AVE '10: 4,837
AVE '09: 3,668

I was going to suggest that it might be their "irregular" schedule but for five months they played one home game a month and managed great crowds! And now they've got lots of games together their gates are not as good.

Nevertheless I think theres lots of potential in Wrexham and even though they won't get a 10,000 starter again I think the Crusaders RL will do things a little differently next season. They certainly don't want any sub-3,000 crowds.

Anyway is this match on Sky?

Good breakdown of the crowds.

I think its alarming that during the off season from the soccer not as many fans have turned out, I can only guess that the deals and freebies have dried up?

Next year they will need a big opener at Wrexham with someone like Wigan or Wire.

And I cant see any games in S Wales.
