Good deal at the LSV with a double header

Am travelling up to Ince Rose Bridge to cheer on the mighty Stags. Am pretty sure kickoff is at 14:30 not 14:00. Shame they couldnt have started earlier allowing people to see the Wigan game as well, seems mad to clash when they're about 3 miles apart. An interesting fixture, the Stags in the role of the big boys up against an amateur team who were in a higher ranked division than them last year. I hope the banana skin will be avoided and then we'll get a nice juicy Super League side to swell the coffers.

Good luck to the Skolars, a long old haul and then a very tough game at the end of it.

I love the amateurs to put one over the semi pros and have seen a few. Swinton .v. East Hull and Thornhill .v. Workington immediately come to mind. I can't see it happening this year though. Would like to have seen Leigh Miners at home to Barrow and its a shame Thatto and Siddal didn't get lower ranked clubs, but I am sure they will do the NCL proud. Rascal, I will be at Hemel as well and there will probably be a few extra on the gate from my amateur club - Eccles because the Hemel full back - Mike Forgham has been with us for the last couple of years.

sound, I might bump into you then. I might be slightly drunk and occasionally shouting,without warning and bearing no relation to what's happening on the field, a long drawn out "HEMEL!" . ;-)

If I don't have to drive I will probably have had a few myself. I am the old fart who still wears a Celtic Crusaders top, but if you watched South Wales Scorpions .v. North Wales Crusaders on premier sports you will recognise me as the guy who was interviewed on the side of the pitch - an old fart in a Celtic crusaders top!

Don't forget that there's another chance to see a game at Wilderspool - Crusaders at 'home' to West Hull (apparently the Racecourse isn't available). Oh, and it's a 14.30 ko.

Shouldn't that be "away" to West Hull?

Nice one plug. I will get to a game Saturday and Sunday but when there is no Rugby League except Super League on a particular day I stay at home and save my money.

It's a good question. Why go to the trouble of arranging free entry for SL season ticket holders and then put most of the games on when the majority of SL games are also on.

No, the fixture was reversed - not sure why.

West Hull couldn't get a ground so asked to reverse the fixture but when the Racecourse wasn't available due to maintenance it was decided to go to Wilderspool as it was closer than the alternative of Eiras Park in Colwyn Bay....

Shame it didn't come to colwyn bay, would have been good to develop interest down the coast.

Edit:

And, having checked google maps, Warrington is 5 miles closer than colwyn bay (although cb is 5 minutes quicker by time)

I'll be at Ince v Hemel, looking forward to it, I'll be the inconspicous bloke behind the sticks Ince are attacking with a 300mm lense in me hand, say hello if you wonder past!

Because West Hull received some duff information about the availability of a ground in Hull and had to forfeit home advantage.

Sorry, when I said Wilderspool was closer, I meant for West Hull, as although they had to travel as they couldn't get a ground the Cru didn't want them to have to go all the way to Colwyn Bay. plus there's a union game on at Eiras at the same time...

Agree Cru should get a game on up the coast at some point....
