Challenge Cup Round 3: Home v Keighley Cougars 24/25 February 2018

Recommended Posts

Fresh from watching the draw: North Wales Crusaders face Keighley Cougars on (probably) Sunday 25th February 2018 (TBC)

A tough test against very good opposition.

This will be our first home game in any cup competition for 728 days. The last one being against Gloucestershire All Golds on 28th February 2016, when All Golds scored on the hooter to send us out of the Challenge Cup.

Obviously hoping for a happier ending this time, but Keighley will be very tough opposition. Should be a good game.

Like so many L1 games this year, very hard to call.....as long as we win by 2 or more...

 

....'coz our drop-goal % is pretty low ;)

From forum discussions with Keighley Cougars fans they should be bringing a fair amount of support. They're aiming to arrive and hit the bar at 13:00

All the best Crusaders with the match. I hope you can take it, not that I have anything against Keithley. Just with my dad growing up in Bagillt, near Fflint.

The locals always say Bagillt, off Fflint!  We have quite a few overseas followers on out North Wales Crusaders Supporters page - USA, Venezuela and Australia - it would be good to get a regular shout out from New Zealand

Today was our first win in the Challenge Cup since we beat Doncaster 1,071 days ago, on 22nd March 2015.

But who's counting? 

Well done. A bit of an upset result. Onward and upward.
