this forum goes on and on about the referee and the last minute decision. Which in my opinion was a very difficult decision to make at the time. We could have won that game. Daryl Clark was rightly voted the Man Of Steel but in this game his inexperience at this level told. In the fast half in the left corner he chose to retain the ball with two men outside him In the final minutes he tried to offload under the posts instead of tacking the tackle and a quick play the ball. At International level you MUST take your chances. He will learn
I thought that was a great gf. So tense until the second saints try. Even drama after that
My wife and I really enjoyed the game and the atmosphere. The idea of providing the fans with free flags added to the colour and atmosphere. I criticise the RFL for lack of marketing but this was a good idea.
My wife and I have tickets for all Wales Group games and the Final. I hope that the opening ceremony in Cardiff will be memorable. Looking forward to seeing James Graham (a great competitor) and the Burgess Brothers.
Here is good news. I live in South Wales. Last Sunday whilst on holiday my wife and I attended the Crusaders v. Rochdale match in Wrexham. We were very impressed. The attendance was over 1000 and growing, But it was the great family atmosphere which pleased us the most. The crowd were very vocal in support of the Crusaders and added to the enjoyment. There were many families. Mothers, daughters and lots of tiny tots in their small Crusaders shirts. If you have not been to Wrexham to see the Crusaders I heartily recommend that you do so.
The topic of this thread is promoting the game. Well all the great fans in Wrexham are doing a superb job. Thank you for a great day from a South Walian. See you all in October for the RLWC.
