  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add me to the list of doubters who got proved wrong. Sorry Steve...and thank you for resurecting a superb team.
  4. 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.
  6. 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
  7. After a best forgotten game at Oldham we move back to the Queensway to try to restore some pride and a better performance. As usual kick off is at 2:30pm. And this week we are trailing Mo's Beach Bar in preparation for the visit by Bradfor Bull - its a bottle and Sangria bar on the far side of the pitch by the palm trees!! Lets get a good home crown ready for the visit from our Cumbrian friends
  8. Not really. Ganson saw the evidence and admitted the ref got it wrong....BUT then quoted the laws fo the game which says the refs decision is final and so the result stands. Worse than that the head of referees told our CEO that "we wouldn't be expected to beat Hunslet" - even though we beat them in the same fixture (at home) last season!! Makes you wonder how objective referees are when their supervisor says things like that. To be fair the Hunslet player DID tell the ref it went under and so did his linesman. Referee Andy Sweet arrogantly decided to ignore both of them and award the drop goal. Oh and Andy Sweet missed on weeks officiating and was back the following week as 4th official at a Super League game. Some punishment eh?

    Well deserved win by Oldham. Not sure why but we looked a totally different team at Newcastle the week before. Our coach Murray is NOT very happy and has told the lads that was not acceptable. I thought your no 23 (Nelmes?) was awsome. He drew 4 tackles every time and left spaces for other players to exploit.

    42 booked on the Crusaders Supporters bus plus half a dozen cars. Should be 60 of us there I guess.

    We do it on Simons (one of our fans) birthday every year. No idea why really!
  12. Nailed on wins for Workington, Thunder and Whitehaven. others will be close particularly if Coventry keep up their run of good play. I'll go |Cougars, Bulls, Doncaster, and of course North Wales Crusaders (by 2 points) !!

    Oldham game 22nd July

    Thanks MR - I think our media guy is just going off old info but I will send him a message to alter our website. Our Supporters bus is filling up nicely and I'll expect it to be nearly full with it being our closest away game. Its our Fancey Dress weekend so God only knows what they'll look like Keep an eye out for me - if the weather stays fine I'll be cycling over from Wrexham.(but going home on the bus) See you on Sunday.
  15. 321 through the gate today. A good 50 Haven fans enjoyed the beer, the sunshine and a deserved win. A tough trip to Newcastle next week and hopefully a win to help us climb up the league.
