#3108914 MOM North Wales vs Fev

Posted by gogledd on 20 April 2015 - 10:04 AM

I thought your No.2 (Sharpe?) and No. &7 (Moore?) both had excellent games and the big fella in the middle (No.16?) made a lot of hard yards and had some tremendous off-loads.


Congratulations on you win and best wishes for the next round of the Challenge Cup and the rest of the season.

#3105447 Crusaders v Thunder

Posted by gogledd on 13 April 2015 - 09:35 AM

Not much to separate the 2 teams but Thunders game management and ability to retain the ball in attacking parts of the pitch gave them a deserved win. Well done Thunder - see you all in September.

#3103588 Last nights Oldham v NW Cru game

Posted by gogledd on 09 April 2015 - 09:58 PM

Thanks to Oldham who were superb opponents last night - two teams giving heart and soul to win that semi-final.


North Wales Crusaders v Swinton in Blackpool Saturday 23rd May. Its going to be a cracker!!

Absolutely fantastic game - if a nail-biter - both teams put heart and soul into the 80 minutes. Oldham could quite easily have been the winners and perhaps with a few minutes more could have broken our staunch defence.


Sorry we couldn't have joined you for a few beer after but I'm sure we'll catch up with you during the season.


There was no gloating from the Cru fans who knew very well they had been in a tough battle. The "we're going to Blackpool" songs didn't start until the final whistle had gone and more in relief to be honest.


Finally the match officials were excellent and made good decisions for both sides.


See you all soon.

See that we got our way.Stick that in your welsh pipe and smoke it.(joke) :)

We asked for the 15th but the RFL wanted to announce the winning teams as soon as possible. According to the Club the "we wont budge" was blown out of proportion and the 8th didn't give anyone any particular problem... but thanks for your comment.. I'll pin it up in the dressing room  for our lads to see. before the game!!

#3094582 CC Round 5 Draw

Posted by gogledd on 24 March 2015 - 10:46 PM

North Wales Crusaders will extend "Croeso Cynnes"  - a warm welcome - to Rovers fans visiting the Racecourse. As usual we will welcome visiting fans to the Turf Hotel adjacent to the ground for a chat, a pint and a song before and after the game.


We maybe underdogs, but the way that our lads played against Doncaster there may be a bit of a scare on the cards. It could be closer than some people think!

“I’m utterly disappointed with it mate to be honest because the lads can’t seem to grasp that it was there for the taking today, as was the North Wales (Crusaders) game."


What game was he watching? Our lads played them off the park n the second half. Disrespectful to say the least.

#3090087 Crusaders v Hornets.

Posted by gogledd on 16 March 2015 - 09:50 PM

I wouldn't be too despondent. Hornets held us in our own half for most of the first half but you couldn't see to capitalise on your field position. From a North Wales perspective I was pleased with our goal-line defence but frustrated by the number of unforced errors and penalties we gave away. Thankfully we came away with a decent win with some good kicking from Declan Patton and gymnastics from Scott Turner.


Good to see the Rochdale faithful who travelled up and called into the Turf before and after the game.

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

#3068373 Difference between heartland and non heartland fans?

Posted by gogledd on 07 February 2015 - 11:29 PM

When Crusaders came North we had supporters who travelled week after week to support their team - prior to N Wales Cru and S Wales Scorpions... and one heartlands fan who would travel to South Wales to watch Celtic Crusaders wherever they played. My hat is always doffed to true die-hards wherever they come from...  likewise to the fans in London who have stuck with their team through thick and thin.

#3066432 Batley Beaten By Crusaders

Posted by gogledd on 04 February 2015 - 09:25 PM

Thanks to R&GA for posting the report. Crusaders had a good day at the office and all our lads looked up for the game. Its great to see a team performance again after some disjointed efforts last season. Lets hope that the way Cru played at Batley is a glimpse of what we will se during 2015. Symud Ymlaen.
