I will most definitely not be defending this squad.  It is an embarrassment.  It is times like this when I am glad of the low key profile of international RL.  Something must be done about this.  Though on the plus side there are some Irish domestic players in the squad who would presumably not be there if the big guns turned up.  Best of luck to those guys, hopefully they learn and the experience will only encourage them and others.

Ben has been great in defence and show some attacking flair thinking quickly on his feat. Hes scored a fair few tries and been the architect of many too. He seems to have settled into our team ethos very quickly and became a fans favorite as the season progressed. I believe it was Richard Agar who had spotted him (as French coach?) and recommended him to Crusaders - if it was we owe Mr Agar a vote of thanks.

It will be interesting to see who signs up for 2016. Quite a few of the players are being quite vocal on social media about not getting their pay for the past few weeks (especially Dalli and Moulsdale).


Stuff like this doesn’t reflect well or create a good impression for any potential new signings. As other posters said, the likes of Jono and Dalli will be highly coveted after coming off really good seasons.

The pay issues not new unfortunately.. its a recurring theme with our lads and this isn't the first season its happened either. It seems that there is always a cash flow problem particularly towards the end of the season. I'm not sure if this just happens at Crusaders or is a common occurrence in League 1.  IF it is a Crusaders problem then I wouldn't blame players looking elsewhere.


After all they put their bodies on the line for a pittance as it is risking injury and health problems later in life. The least they can ask is that they get paid on time.

Good to see Benjamin Jullien in the French squad. Hes been one of the stand-out player at North Wales Crusaders this season (on loan from Warrington)

Well done to both teams for putting on a great game. So very close. Congratulations to Swinton - the one-point Kings!!  Best of luck in the Championship next season.

I'm told it is Stuart Reardons testimonial season so he must be staying.
