Looks and sounds like they are outnumbering the Huddersfield fans.

Very impressive and they sound really up for it.

Hopefully they can hold on in this next half.

It's this type of thing that could really make this club. If they hold on today, all 700 will return to Wales and tell their mates what a fantastic day out they've had - and that can only be good. Others will soon want a part of that.

I agree, I think last week will have done a lot for their season ticket sales.

For getting new fans you can't beat drama and success. Rugby League can provide games that are so intense that you are literally on the edge of your seat for a whole game. From reports the Cru had one last week.

Once you've seen that you'll put up with the rubbish games and the big defeats because you know that there'll be times like that again. It's the same for any sport. The problem RL often has is that people will only ever give it one chance and if it doesn't produce an absolute classic then they won't come back. The people of North Wales appear to have given them a real chance and been rewarded for it.

Noisy all game, never shut up, top effort from their fans


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.

Hearing all the old favourites - Hymns and arias, Oggy Oggy Oggy, Bread of Heaven etc today tells you that this Club is here to stay.

Wonderful effort to totally dominate the stadium today noise-wise from start to finsih.

If the board provide the cash in 4 years we will win a GF and have between 7-8000 crowds every week - more if the Kop gets sorted at Cae Ras.

Not sure about the GF but a visit to Wembley or a semi-final of the SL isn't unrealistic.

Amazing effort by their fans. They lit up a very poor albeit exciting match.

Great win for the under 18s today though. Beating Catalans, kids who were brought up with RL, is no mean feat.

Season tickets aren't valid for playoffs.

But yes you'd think people would want to go anyway. Their crowds aren't great but next to Salford or Quins they're okay so it's all relative.

With Huddersfield Town playing away and Wrexham FC playing at home, the crowd was always going to be affected.

Wrexham FC tried to rearrange the kick off time for their game at The Racecourse, so that their dual code fans could go to Huddersfield and support the Crusaders as well but York weren't having any off it.

Sadly I was only able to make one visit to Wrexham this year amd was made very welcome. The Crusaders support at Huddersfield was superb and very noisy. I will certainly make more visits to support Crusaders next year. Well done to all.

Both Eorl Crabtree & Robbie Savage have long blonde hair but I think Crabtree is about 3 time the size [height & build] of Savage so I don't think that comparison works too well. biggrin.gif

to be honest this is the bonus of 8th making the play offs.. crusaders, harlequins and catalans stand more of a chance of regualr play off appearences, play off RL should get people excited and help these clubs grow..

(its the only plus side of 8 in and if that is what the RFL were actually thiking then it could prove to be a great call)
