Fantastic acheivement to make the 8


A lot of Yorkshiremen believe that when God created the world, he made it with perfect balance.
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

I'd second that. Well done Cru, hopefully you get some good publicity from it across Wales.

Indeed - to finish so far ahead of Bradford is brilliant - good old Nobby
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.

Certainley is, it's what you get for having a top class coach and what we deserve for binning him and employing a nobody in the hope that he could continue Nobby's legacy.

Exceeded my expectations too, well done.
Thought they'd be "in the mix" for 8th, didn't think they'd get over the line, well done Nobby and the team, and fans too.

Well done to the boys.

Standing in the ground during the 'final minute' of the Cas game, which seemed to last about 10 years, was one of the most nerve-wracking times of my life!!!

After Sammut's try, myself and the missus agreed to name our first-born Jarrod. I suspect she thinks that only applies if it's a boy...

Thinking back to when it was announced that they were moving to Wrexham, who realistically thought they would do anything other than finish bottom? 12th/13th would have been an achievement.....this is a real achievement. Well done - and that's definitely not being patronising!!

PLAY??
The lad is a magician!

Exhibit A - Crusaders v Salford, big Salford lad smashes it up the middle, hands off Sammut, who then takes the ball from his other hand and runs off...

yes yes yes...his playing caught my eye first of course, and that's the best bit about him...but you've got to love his look as well biggrin.gif

What really impresses me is that he slipped straight into the team and has performed from word go, well whenever I've seen him. He really exudes enthusiasm for the team and game. Last night he was struggling to give a urine sample ages after the game because he was so hyped up with the result - he loves his rugby

I hope he doesn't show his class next Saturday though wink.gif

Looking at another thread I actually feel quite guilty. We've torn whole families and communities apart by bringing our sport to this North Welsh enclave.

The question of whether to go follow the Crusaders to Huddersfield or to stay loyal to Wrexham who are playing at same time, could cause a civil war in Wrexham.
