I think Clive was concentrating on chastising our performance; I'm not sure there was any sour grapes regarding how Rochdale performed. You won at a canter and 'outplayed us in every department' - and that is on the NWC website for all to read.
I doubt very much that Clive Griffiths will complain about Saints players when we have loan Widnes players on the books at Crusaders. Plus that would just be making excuses for what was a dreadful performance from our players.
I was at the ground and heard scores being announced all the way through the game - whichever side scored - perhaps you guys were celebrating so loudly you just missed the announcements. They definitely were made and you could hear them quite clearly in the library-quiet section of the Cru support!! We definitely don't go in for bad manners at Crusaders and are rightly proud of our friendly welcome to all opposition supporters.
My original post was not clear for which I apologise.
You are correct that your announcer did give the score on each occasion, but my gripe was that he never once announced the names of Hornets individual scorers, which in my opinion was extremely poor.
It's the first time I can ever remember that happening!!!
Regarding my comment about Mr Griffith, it was tongue in cheek after all the whinging he did last season about DL, only to find that this season he has joined the DL brigade.
We look forward to welcome in you all tomSpotland later in the year.
