Thatto Heath Crusaders will represent the Hattons Solicitors National Conference League next Saturday 29th October, as the NCL Champions travel to Perpignan to face The Federal XIII de France representative team in a European Challenge match.
The game will take place at the Stade Gilbert Brutus and will act as a curtain raiser to the full international between France and Scotland. The Crusaders will be looking to emulate previous NCL Champions Oulton Raiders, Skirlaugh and Leigh East in winning on French soil. However this fixture represents a significant step up in the standard of opposition, as the representative side will comprise all of the best amateur players from their domestic amateur competition.
Thatto Heath Crusaders squad will be selected from:-
Shaun Quinn, Phillip Morrison, Darren Woods, Adam Walsh, Dave Hull, Andrew Stott, Chris Frodsham, Mick Ledger, Tom Eckersley, Ste Woods, Ste Ward, Alex Trumper, James Clarke, Mark Beech, Keiron Maddocks, Anthony Bate, David Pike and James Hitchmough.
The Federal XIII de France squad is:-
Jean Luc Angelini, Jean Patrick Angelini (both Roanne), Romain Bonnet, Tiphaine Thomassin (both APT), Sebastian Chastaing, Julien Lacrambe, Benoit Loumo-Sanchez, Julien Rodriguez (all Gratentour), Julien Ciravollo (St. Hippolyte), Cheik Cissoko, Mathieu Zokou (both Paris), Fabien Croux, Lionel Munoz, Brice Nuttini (all Ornaisons), Ismael Navarlas, Benjamin Sarda (both Ferrals) Mathieu Posez (Trentels), Julien Sicot (Beziers).
Accompanied by Head Coach Andrew Bailey and his support team, the squad fly out of Liverpool on Friday morning, with a training session planned for Friday night when the Crusaders will be hosted by French Championship side St.Esteve XIII.
