For Clive, John, the backroom staff, the squad and the 300 fans travelling to Halifax.....

" We heard Crusaders were on the warpath. We were eager to join forces"
"If it is victory you seek, your welcome to join us"
But you bring only this handful supporters, ...against Skolars? I see I was wrong to expect Crusaders commitment to at least match our own"

"You, there, What is your profession?"
"I'm a potter, Sir."
"And you, Cestrian, what is your profession?"
"Hair stylist, Sir"
"And you?"
"Sheep farmer"

"CRUSADERS!! WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION"
AAWOO! AAWOO! AAWOO!

"You see old friend, I brought more supporters than you did."

no doubt the fans will turn out in large numbers, if they can take over 100 to thatto heath then i am sure the final will be a wall of noise from them.

Oh Yes!!

Looking forward to this so much.

 

Father is driving, which is excellent news, let's hope the bar is well stocked! Got a first-timer coming along with us, who has decided to give the game ago despite his advancing years, so here's hoping for a close game.. in the second match!

 

Knowing first-hand how much hard work Jamie Thomas and his team have done, I'm hoping this will be the first step in vindicating their hard work. Something special and genuine and real is building here in North Wales, and without the likes of Jamie and Clive Griffiths, all we would have is memories of Super League, rather than long-term aspirations.

40:20 skolars.

Split on who to cheer for here. I naturally side with the underdogs but also really like Crusaders.

Think the ref is doing well.

Shows how many cameras you need for effective vr - difficult for the vr on a couple here.

you could clearly see the dark of the grass between the white of the line, and the white of the ball.

Maybe you two had a different camera angle from me, the VR and the commentary team.

Good use of the trademark 'farce' though.

It would have been an absolute FARCE if they'd have won by virtue of that FARCICAL video referee decision.

pretty upset by the refereeing today felt that the cru lads chirped a lot at the ref and he responded. also video ref stuff went against the skolars. good game tho and cru are a good side. looking forward to them at New River 23rd Aug. chance for TV revenge!

The referee seemed to be poor, not biased. With bad decisions affecting both sides. If a player had spilled the ball under his own posts, the ref would of called a knock on. On the plus side, all the players and fans were top notch. Best of all we WON!
