In Topic: Harris on his way out?

Yesterday, 06:31 PM

He was out of his depth at Crusaders RL - edging Nobby out of his coaching role. Nobby took a team of no-hopers to the top 8 of Super League - within a season virtually the same team were bottom of the league.  Lots of pundits said the Crusaders job was too early for Harris.


He allegedly spent a fortune when Wales RL coach, players put on weight and didn't play to their potential in the World Cup, losing all their games and not progressing past the pool stage.


He again replaced Nobby at Salford and took time to establish himself. Perhaps he's never really had the team he build himself but former players were vocal about his lack of management skills... so no real surprise that he may be on his way out.


As others have said - a good second-in-command.

Regarding travel - personally I like travelling to other clubs particularly ones I've not been to before. I know there are costs involved and not everyone can afford it. I like the challenge of cycling to clubs so this cuts down on fuel but increases the overall cost with some of the trips needing to be overnight due to distance.


I tend to lean towards keeping new 'southern' clubs playing against 'northern' opposition to nurture and grow their clubs. I'm not sure where Crusaders fit into the League 1 geography.. this season were playing away at Skloars and Newcastle!!

Where they appearing at the international eisteddfod! Hows Benjamin Jullien shaping up?

Nothing to do with the International Eisteddfod -  they were the Lutnia Choir who were visiting Wrexham Community Choir on a return visit after WCC going across to Poland last year. The two choirs sang together at the Racecourse as part of the cultural exchange. WCC sang one Polish song which the Welsh choir had learned and one Welsh song which the Polish choir had learned. I had a hand in setting it up as I'm a member of Wrexham Community Choir and it was a great moment to perform in from of an appreciative crowd.


Benjamin Jullien was a handful for Keighley all game, he tackled like  a Trojan and set up 3 tries - and got a well deserved MotM vote from the Crusaders fans.

Agreed it was low key, but good to see that they have included all teams in the launch - including the Wheelchair team - I hope other nations will take note.
