Have missed many games of late for a variety of reasons, but glad I watched this one. A half time score of 10 - 6 up was beyond my expectations but we were worthy leaders. A second half restart strewn with errors saw the lads nearly extend their lead only for the Crusaders to kick the ball dead following an error deep in their half. The amazing Adam Files tormented the defence time and time again only to see the ball spill as he took defenders over the line with him. Crusaders had a fortuitous bounce of the ball near our line and scored. Reardon showed his class as he set up another try for the home side to extend to 22 - 10. Never say die Oldham came back time and time again, but that man Files scored an amazing individual try under the sticks. With only seconds remaining Palfrey kicked a 40 - 20 and a following chip to the corner saw young Fordy catch and score. All that remained was the conversion, but it shaved the post .
Final score 22 - 20 and the lads were given a standing ovation by all of the travelling fans. Crusaders fans agreed that we had em rocking and it was the best game by far at Wrexham. Really proud of the resolve, fitness and tenacity in defence against a side that will win the league by a country mile. We must push on from here.
