Well us North Wales Crusaders fans enjoyed ourselves anyway. 300 is not a bad turn out for a CH1 side from Wales.
I think the competition has legs - it gives something for CH and CH1 clubs to play for - and only becomes irrelevant when you get knocked out!
Only 300? Sounded like a lot more than that! Some great noise from that part of the stand.
I do hope the competition keeps going as for me it goes back to why we support our teams. Ultimately, to see them win trophies - nothing beats that, even if it is a 'minor' trophy.
I get the comparisons with football's Johnstone's Paint Trophy. I've seen my team lose the final of that competition three times now and each time it was a right kick in the teeth, although if we go out in the first round I'm never massively bothered.
I would be thrilled to see Hemel in the NRB Final next year.
