In Topic: 05 Feb: SL Match Thread: Wigan Warriors v Catalans Dragons KO 8pm

07 February 2016 - 01:53 PM

I was at the game and conditions were truly terrible. it ranged from drizzle to pi$$ing down  and there was a gusty breeze too. Wigan seemed to cope with it better but did make handling errors (unsurprisingly) but Catalans looked like they hadn't seen a ball since last September.


Catalan looked liked they were clueless in attack and lacked the imagination they show when playing in Perpignan - I couldn't pick one outstanding player from les Drac as they were all equally as awful as each other. I usually enjoy going to support Catalans in the UK but that was dire - thats £24  and 4 hours of my time I'll never get back!! 


As for refs decisions - no real complaints from me but refs need to clampdown on both sides playing the ball AT the mark.

Absolutely well don to Cougars WRL. A great performance and the players were enjoying the game which is extremely important. I'd like to say thank you to Cougars WRL fro the invitation and the friendly welcome we received.


I hope more players, staff and supporters get behind Cougars WRL and support them in whatever way they can.



See you on 26th March at Deeside Leisure Centre for the Viper Series Spring Slam.

Jono Smith is a big loss though isn't he? Is it true the Crusaders are in financial trouble and their CEO has left? Hope it's not true

Jono was a great fans favourite and has been with North Wales Crusaders since the very first friendly, however his disciplinary record left Crusaders with very little option to let him go - he has an 8-week ban and Crusaders can afford to pay someone to warm the bench.


Crusaders do have some outstanding debts but also have a plan in place to deal with the debt. Hopefully this will not affect the playing team but it does include the club playing within its income stream - so some financial prudence will be necessary.


CEO Jamie Thomas has stepped down but I believe this is not because of the outstanding debt. He chose to stand down some time ago; perhaps the timing of his announcement wasn't ideal and its easy to see why people are reading between the lines. However it is expected that a new CEO will be appointed shortly. Currently the remaining directors on the Board of Directors are in charge and are confident that the season will be as ambitious as the Crusaders fans are used to.


This season North Wales Crusaders are in dual reg relationship with Salford Red Devils. The relationship between the two coaches is extremely good and the training sessions in Salford and north Wales have been going well. We had a close game with Batley last weekend and we have pre-season games against Salford and York coming up.


Looking forward to a very competitive league, seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
