This will be a true sign of how far we've come - a win puts us firmly in the driving seat for the playoffs, a loss lets Crusaders right back in it.

I think we should have enough though and will win by 14

The fancy dans of castleford will struggle with the basic environs of the gnoll, and the crusaders are discovering the welsh fighting spirit despite their non-welsh origins. The small pitch will see the silky skills of the northern sophisticates nullufied, the basic food and flavoursome beer will distract the prawn sandwich munching, rhubarb growing cas fans, sammuts hair will at key moments blind the oppo and crusaders will win by 3 penalty goals to 2.

Cas to win by 10-12

With about the same amount of Cas fans making the journey (unfortunately).

With the game being played on what is effectively a neutral ground and both sides needing a win, this could be very close but I'm taking Crusaders to win with typical Brian Noble borefest efficiency by 4.

Long trip for Cas, and they're on a good run having gotten into good habits, when having the usual routine of being up north.

This is different, and they should be on a come down from their derby too, Crusaders to win by 16.

If we have any aspirations of making the playoffs then this is a must win game. I think we'll win by six points. Been away with work for a couple of weeks - really missed my RL - so looking forward to the game.

Cru Cru Crusaders!

I bet you could have got great odds on Crusaders winning nine games this season. Woeful and worrying, considering their form at the moment, attendance though of less than 1500. Smallest gate this season.

I think playing it at The Gnoll instead of The Racecourse Ground AND the previous incident involving Castleford will have massively affected the attendance.

When they got Noble, I thought that they would not finish bottom, however I would not have thought that they would have been pushing for a playoff place. I think everyone is starting to look at the run in's now.

Yes I agree. You've got to take your hat off to Noble for achieving what he has with limited pre season preparation time.

Beats me why they even bothered playing games in South Wales, would have got a higher crowd in Wrexham.

Yessssss! :D

Absolutely delighted with this result. If we have any hope of making the playoffs then winning this game was a must - and we did it, in the most dramatic of ways. I couldn't listen to the last few minutes; I was way to nervous!

I still think it's going to be very difficult for us to make the top eight but, hey, who knows - we've just got to believe...

I really hope that Brian Noble doesn't leave us next season. Crusaders pushing for a play-off space - who'd have thought that at the beginning of the season?!

Dewch hogia! C'mon lads!

Hard lines to the Cas fans on here.
