#3201874 League 1 Play-Offs: Keighley Cougars away. Sunday 27th September

Posted by Number 7 on 27 September 2015 - 07:34 PM

Well done Cougars, we finally ran out of steam but not down hearted.

Its been a great season and despite the horrific injury crisis we had to deal with the club still did what it set out to do, that being WIN the I-pro cup and make the play-offs.

Many a 'heartland' club would like to stay that they had hit their targets as well as we have!

Onward and hopefully upward next year with another season to consolidate our club which lets face it, is nothing but a baby in years. 


Many thanks for the warm welcome the club and its supporters has received today in Keithley and other clubs this season, looking forward to visiting many next year.

#3197659 Oldham Promoted

Excellent, well done to our friends over at Oldham. A well deserved promotion best team in the league this year, should have been automatic imho.

And despite beating NWC twice!

Never mind at least you finished top of the bottom 9! ;-)

Game day and what a big one it is. Lets hope the lads can do it today as yet again we are down to the bare bones with just enough players to fill the bench. The crowd will need to be right behind them today it could make all the difference. Lets do this and today and kill off any hopes for them up the road before a nail biting last game.
Cru, cru crusaders!

The best news to date is rochdale getting totally stuffed by Barrow, its all in our hands now a win tomorrow will see us in the play offs.


Be there or be square as they say, Come on the Cru'

#3187671 Final home game

Posted by Number 7 on 04 September 2015 - 09:06 PM

Good luck Barrow, we will be cheering for you from N Wales, good to catch up with some of your fans watching the Cru' winning down in the big smoke last weekend, especially good to see Tony and Kath, still up if not quite running on the Saturday.

Great win for the Cru' today  :yahoo:

#3086176 Challenge Cup: Widnes West Bank to play at the Racecourse

Posted by Number 7 on 09 March 2015 - 10:30 PM

A fair run out for the Cru' but we will have to be tighter and more cynical next week against rochdale. We took our foot off the gas, should have put the game to bed and won by at least 70+ imo. Credit to West Bank for their performance in the 2nd half.



#3007592 Good Luck

Posted by Number 7 on 05 October 2014 - 06:29 AM

Best of luck today guys, from a Cru supporter,

A bit childish imo, Raiders dispute is personal with Andy! not the NW Crusaders so they should not be doing this as it affects the Welsh club more. As soss says above looks petty to anyone looking on from the outside.

#2945118 Whitehaven home

Posted by Number 7 on 15 June 2014 - 08:09 PM

A great win against an in form team.  There were some bodies and passion  on the line out there today for everyone to see today, and thankfully not a single one of them was from our secondary support club.

They were our lads, playing for our club and our shirt! and boy it showed through in the end,

#2933820 Workington away

Posted by Number 7 on 23 May 2014 - 11:02 AM

Thanks for getting back with that Ratboy its nice to know where the info' is coming from and that it can be usually relied on.

I think Adam is going to have to put in a blinder (as he did at Leigh Sports Village) to convince the Cru' fans of his worth after his last performance at the Racecourse.

As for Dec Hulme, if playing I'm sure he will cope well even if they do try to target him and it may even be to their detriment to plan their game around that tactic.

Lets hope so anyway.

#2933178 Workington away

Posted by Number 7 on 22 May 2014 - 08:31 AM

Ratboy, they are both good players and have done well for us in some previous games but I think we'll have to wait and see. Where or from who, are you getting this info? because last time Adam Lawton was supposed to be playing for us against Whitehaven and he wasn't even at the ground.


I can't make the game this week (gutted), I will be on the opposite side of the country all dolled up in a suit!

I agree with the comments above and see Worky' as being a team similar to us at the moment. We have all the ability to win this one and on a good day win it well but I will  go for a 28 -14 win for the Cru.


Have a great game and safe trip everyone going up on Sunday.

#2895596 Featherstone Rovers VS North Wales Crusaders

Posted by Number 7 on 09 March 2014 - 11:41 AM

But then i found out 1 of our officials had to go to Red Hall over it in the week, its irrelevant how many chant if the player cant handle that he would last no more than 5 mins playing amateur rugby


Strange that!!! considering he's played amateur  all his life until joining the NWC!


Please stop grasping at straws to deflect away from the true topic, that being some of your fans let your club down. This has happened at other clubs and no doubt will happen again and again, some times worse than others but that's how it goes.

Don't get me wrong I'm no angel and the odd expletive does slip out mostly in frustration,  but to continuously chant and swear, as has been witnessed and  reported especially after being repeatedly asked to stop over the tanoy system, just can't be condoned by anyone and has rightly been condemned by your own  Fev fans. 

As for Jono I'm sure that the management team at NWC will look at the matter and do what is necessary.

Move on mate and let them that are dealing with it do their job and sort it.


Shan't be commenting any further.


New game, new day.

#2869991 Weekend Friendlies

Posted by Number 7 on 26 January 2014 - 01:21 PM

is the weather that bad? Quite rare for rain to call games off nowadays. Wasn't someone raving about Leigh's pitch last week on here?

^^^^Jumped in the water with two feet a bit early there then ;) . Weather has been bloody awful all week then yesterdays thunder, rain and hail storms and on top of that constant rain this morning seems to have put pay to most fixtures today.

At least the Leigh v Cru game was called off early enough to save people traveling, hope everyone else was as lucky.
