  1. Same choices.... Cru pushed Doncaster really hard at the Keepmoat..we have 3 good wins on the trot, we're building for next season to push for a play-off place. Let's start putting things in place with a win again Donny.

    Private equity in sport

    So would you be happy if a PE firm came in bought SuperLeague, kept all the media rights and promoted just 12 clubs? What the future for anyone outside that? The RFL would have sold the intellectual rights to the game and effectively given up on Chapionship and League 1. By the way, I am NOT a Bradford Bulls fan

    An excellent and well observed article by Andrew Chambers. Lets hope the Championship and League 1 Clubs stick together and reject the SL/RFL proposal at the EGM

    I've sent a message to the CEO to see if we have any stashed away somewhere. If we have any I will be happy to send 3 out to you. Mark
  6. Two excellent results at Hemel (away) and at home to West Wales Raiders; some great rugby leading to some super tries, both convincing wins but also very pleasing, clean sheets for the defence. I think Coventry will be a much harder prospect. They have targeted us as a winnable game in the past, and have been successful, but we need to win this game as part of the preparation for 2019. We are very unlikely to finish higher than 10s so no improvement on last year, so we need to concentrate on inproving our play against teams close to us. There is Supporters Away Travel available. £14 per person; the bus leaves from outside the Turf, Mold Road at 11:30 Book your place by emailing crufans@gmail.com

    I can't remember if we actually produced a programme for the game. I will make enquiries and let you know.
  8. Good win by North Wales Crusaders yesterday in very blustery conditions...kicks bouncing all over the place!! Some good play to set up tries but coach Murray must be even more pleased with the defensive effort. Hemel troubled the try line quite regularly but couldn't get past our defence. It was a very happy bus home. 26 on the Supporters coach plus a few independent travellers and our Directors would have taken our travelling support to over 30. Looking forward to the Welsh Derby on 2nd September.
  9. Bradford, North Wales Crusaders, Oldham, Coventry, Doncaster, York. North Wales need to get a good win on Sunday, then at home against West Wales the following week in preperation for a real battle at Coventry... with Doncaster to follow. We are low on players with a long list of injuries - probably most teams going through that now but really sad to see James Dandy stretchered off last week and needing CT and MRI scan following a head and neck injury against Bradford Bulls.
  10. North Wales Crusaders Wheelchair Rugby League play Hereford Harriers in the final of the Challenge Cup plate competition. Hereford are divisional champions this season and so we will find ourselves facing tough opposition, some of whom are ex-Crusaders players who we know well. Friendship will be put on hold for 80 minute and hopefully we can improve on the mid- season game where we lost by 7 points. The game take place in Bradford on Saturday 18th August. 10:30 kick off.
  11. I've been a bit quiet on the forum lately but its all down to not being at a computer for a few weeks. On Sunday 19th August we travel to Hemel Stags - we have away an coach leaving at 09:00 for a 14:00 kick off. Places available for £18. As usual book at crufans@gmail.com Lets hope after playing the two strongest teams in the league the lads can put a few wins back to make a respectable end to the season.
  12. Add me to the list of doubters who got proved wrong. Sorry Steve...and thank you for resurecting a superb team.
  13. Just a quick reminder that North Wales Crusaders play at Queensway Stadium Queensway Wrexham LL13 8UH local beers and food available at the stadium. Kick off is at 2:30pm. So come along and sample some of our fine Welsh Ales and Wrexham Lager. Croeso' cynes i bawb.

    R20 Tricky Crusaders

    I hope you do get a good attendance at the game on Sunday. I'm fuming that the RFL have put the Challenge Cup double header on a weekend where other games are expected to compete with two enormous games. Why not have the CC semi on a weekend with no other RL games on, so that clubs don't lose out and those who'd like to go and watch the CC games can do so? Our away travel is struggling to get to our break-even figure of 30 people on our bus to York on Saturday and I know a fair few of our regulars are going to watch the CC semi. It means our away travel fun will lose money, less people will be at York so your income will be down a little too. I hope Crusaders can put on their best performance against York - we will need to.
  15. Croeso cynes i pawb/ A warm welcome to all travelling Workington fans, Just a reminder we are no longer at the Racecourse but at Queensway Stadium Queensway Wrexham LL13 8UH We have a pre-League 1 game before the main event - North Wales Origin v Devon Sharks which means the bars at the stadium will be open from 11am onwards. There are burgers and dogs available at the ground and usually an ice cream tricycle as well! Or you could try our very reasonable hospitality package (see the website for details) There is a local diner and chip shop but the nearest pub is some considerable distance way, certainly not walking distance. Welach chi i gyd ddydd Sul/ See you all on Sunday
