Glad they are doing well for your team. Hope Adam does well too and I will be looking out for your results. Very quiet on the rugby forums.

Absolutely gutted, fans and players I'm sure!!!

MotM today..He's a big lad and quick with it. Looking forward to seeing him play again. Didn't Gilmore get your drop goal today?

I believe Tom Gilmore played well today at Hull, with a drop goal too. Mellor is a big miss for Widnes and if Gilmore does well then it will soften the blow. Luckily we have a few decent halfbacks and with Craven out for a few weeks gives Tom a chance. If Craven can't get in then he would do a good job for the Crusaders. Lawton is a top talent and with our squad strength, you will get a few of our players if required. Sorry you missed out on the bonus point, but encouraging signs as Leigh are a top Championship side.

Cracking game at the LSV and we were pretty much point to point with them for 70 minutes.  They scored an interception try (offside?) and that was the game-changer. The drop goal at the end really was a sickener - and we came away with nothing to show for the best team performance so far.

Just watched the highlights package on LCTV and it was n`t offside. Good performance from you guys though and you`ll win more than you lose on that effort.

Bartholemew, obviously from a Cru supporters perspective I'm going to question decisions, and will stand corrected if wrong. As you've watched it back did you thing either of the first tow Leigh tries resulted from forward passes and was Ridyards drop goal executed properly - did the ball touch the floor before the kick.  They were my gripes after the game and would appreciate your opinion.

 

We appreciated the warm reception from the Leigh supporters and were well looked after by the match stewards who were good sports.

Neither looked forward to me and I have seen the highlights on Centurions TV.

 

It seems a few of our players were suffering from flu and one went off with broken ribs and another with tonsilitis according to Paul Rowleys post match review.

 

Having said that Cru looked very good.

Not seen the game played back on TV so don't know the answer to the question, but I would like to congratulate you on the great support you brought and you where a credit to your club, also looks like you have a good side as well. Good luck for the rest of the season.

Good to see the Leythers from Rl fans contributing. Widnes near full strength,and I would take Grant Gore too. Gore,Lawton, Gilmore and Dec Hulme will do a great job for the Crusaders. With Mellor out for a few months, I see Gilmore staying at Widnes for now. Possibly Craven could come in the Crusaders direction.
