Hi Guys, Salford fan here.

 

Firstly, congratulations on what seems to have been a tremendous season for you guys so far. Just wondering how the couple of Salford youngsters in Ford and Files have been going for you this season? I know both are rated very highly within the Salford club, just wondering how you guys rate them. Here's hoping your season continues in the same form, and good luck for your massive game against Crusaders on Sunday.

Files has been phenomenal all year and for me been our best player along with Langtree ,Palfrey and Lepori. Huge threat from dummy half and has been key for us in winning many tight games.

Ford is a good centre but I think he lacks power and strength to make the step up to a higher level. Great finisher though.

Don't be telling him that , they'll be wanting them back. No mate they're rubbish, might as well let them come to us on freeby. Let us do you a favour andtake them off your hands permanently. :D

Of course, no loans or Dual Reg players in North Wales Crusaders. We play our own players and that's why we win! ;)

No it's not. You win cos those players that you have are decent players for the league and you have a bloody good coach. They're not playing for the shirt or the supporters , Dallimore is the proof of that. They're playing for a tried and trusted coach who they feel will help them move on to better things. Something that Naylor is proving he is.

Tell me which club have players who are playing for their shirt or their fans? I will tell you - Oldham St. Annes, Waterhead, Eccles ARLFC not Oldham RLFC! As for semi-pro teams, if you were more involved with NW Crusaders than you are you would be assured that those players are closer to their fans than any others in the same division, and yes, I do know a few people who are involved with Oldham.

I assure you the group of players at Oldham certainly are close to the fans, fact and care more about ORLFC than you think. Now be a good Rooster and be more concerned about your mission13 and your coaches bizzare comments and jog on, try the mind games it wont work. We will see who is victorious come Sunday afternoon, if you win you will deserve it for sure as will we. Dont try to big up your "historic" club, thats one argument you certainly will lose!!

Look, let's just agree its each club to their own and how each others players interact with their fans is up to each club. What I would say however is that it's great to see (most) Oldham fans positive about the way things are going again and whilst we talk about our short history as a club, it really is not so different to Oldham with a new coach and a young squad put together in the off season.

In my opinion these are the two clubs that will win promotion this year, but I'm still confident we will win the league. If you win on Sunday - and I genuinely think you should win this game, you're in great form and haven't beaten us so far - we can still lose another game in our run in and will still end up ahead. Plus you've got to go to both Rochdale and London.

It's not mind games to say the pressure is on Oldham, because if they lose its effectively all over - but either way as I said I think these are the two teams to go up.....

Cru's have been by far the best team this season, the league table shows that. But if the Roughyeds beat you Sunday then your run in might not look quite so easy. Hemel, remember them? Oxford, Skolars and South Wales, none of those are easy games and Gateshead wont just lie down and let Cru's walk all over them. Lose Sunday and I think things change massively but I agree you are still favourites. Should be a great game again and I am certainly looking forward to it.

He is at every training session with a big smile on his face. He puts everything into every session and every game. He is learning from two good coaches who coached him at Salford and he is winning us games. If that is a failure, then lets have more of it please. We didn't ask for this dual reg but he has been outstanding week in and week out.
