In Topic: Tyson Frizzell commits to WalesGood man:

The announcement the last year tournament would result in WC qualification came very late on and certainly after the bulk of the 'elite' players had made their decision not to put themselves forward for selection.



Regarding Tyson Frizell; I know that the Wales RL team manager took time out to travel across to meet Tyson during the World Club series just to touch base and se how he was since playing in the world cup. Perhaps this gesture by the team manager, who is a genuine and decent bloke played a small part in Tyson's decision?

I went to that game and thoroughly enjoyed it. Star larker for me was Crusaders' no. 11. For a bloke that's built like a Lego man he can't half shift.


The game was rounded off by a tremendous 60 metre effort by the West Hull centre, courtesy of a Crusaders' loose pass.

That sounds like our very own Jono Smith. He's saved our hides on a number of occasions and scored some belting tries. One of the fans favourites.


Sounded like West Hull put up a strong fight and Crusaders fell asleep towards the end. Can't afford to do that in the next round against Rochdale Hornets. I'm sure our boys will remember the embarrassment of our drubbing at home last season and use this to concentrate their minds ... but first we have the matter of Widnes West Bank in the Challenge Cup.

I have a feeling that Coventry and Newcastle Thunder will surprise quite a few of us this season.

Fanblog preview of Hornets v Scorpions here.



Glad to see that TLCRF80mins has reigned in the Welsh stereotypes and there is no ###### take of the Welsh Language and its resulted in an decent, well written article rather than the drivel we were presented with in the Hornets programme last season. A much improved blog - even allowing for your Google Translate warning!


North Wales Crusaders are not taking West Hull lightly - and neither should they; but our pre-season has gone well and we've see some good team performances, particularly at Batley. Cru should score the bulk of their points late on.



I'm not travelling as I was expecting a Sunday fixture (on St Davids Day); I've already arranged to be with the North Wales Crusaders Wheelchair team in a fixture against Leyland Warriors, so Ill have to get my updates by text.


I think the shout of away wins on Saturday and Hoe wins on Sunday could be upset by Coventry Bears, otherwise its not a bad call.

It will be very close. Catalan can win but it will depend on them keeping 13 players on the pitch. Discipline will be key. Catalan by 2 points.
