Thirteen tries to three romp for the Cru, including Jono (he's fat, he's round, he's worth a million pounds) Smith equalling Rob Massam's record of five tries in a game and Rob getting a hat-trick, including a length of the field effort that was worth the admission money alone to see. Unfortunately, the score rather sums up Hemel's performance, although they did keep trying until the end. Gate was 503, which was more than I expected. Off to Cefn Druids now, apparently when the contractors re-laid the pitch at the Racecourse last year they used the wrong kind of sand for the substrate :wild:

Well, moving the game forward by one day has reduced our crowd to 503, annoyed some season-ticket holders who bough their tickets expecting Sunday games and made not one iota of difference to getting the pitch sorted.  I've been to the stadium today and absolutely NOTHING is happening


North Wales Crusaders need to get their fans back.


A fantastic win for the team last week and a winning cup performance in Blackpool next week may go a long way to help.

What'll interest me about the Crusaders' game isn't so much the result (we SHOULD win quite comfortably, although I've said that before and been proved horribly wrong!) but the gate, with the match being switched to Saturday pending a two game move to Cefn Druids while the contractors try to put right the cock-up they made of re-laying the pitch at the Racecourse last summer.

We shall see.. I know its upset a number of season ticket holders who bought tickets on release of the fixtures being on a Sunday. Lets hope we start getting our gates back up in the 900s very soon.


Personally I can't make it as I'm with our Wheelchair Team as we have a league fixture with Swindon St.George and Medway Dragons (Deeside Leisure Centre CH5 1SA,) KO 12:00 if anyone fancies coming down.

Far too complacent in the first half. It looked like our lads were expecting a walk over. Scorpions gave good account of themselves and deservedly went 14 - 12 up. Cru then woke up and scored 2 tries before half time and then put on a decent second half performance. Still too many penalties which is a worry.


Here is the link for the S4C coverage with Welsh commentary. Its oly available until the end of the month so watch it while its available.

3 North Wales Crusaders fans are cycling to the#BigWelshDerby to raise money for the RFL Benevolent Fund in memory of Danny Jones, the Keighley Cougars and Wales RL player who tragically passed away recently.
You can help by donating at the Just Giving Page:
or give cash at the game to any of the cyclists or the North Wales Crusaders Supporters Club committee members.
All 3 fans are keen cyclist and have cycled to other rugby stadia in the past. Andy led a "Save the Cru" ride from Yorkshire to the Racecourse, while Mark and Keith have riden from Wrexham to Barrow last season and to Swinton twice this season.
Stage 1 08/05/2015: Wrexham to Newbridge-on-Wye via Welshpool - 76 miles
Stage 2 09/05/2015: Newbridge-on-Wye to Cardiff via Brecon - 74.5 miles
See you all in Cardiff. Thank you for donating. Diolch yn fawr.
