  1. On the game, we were a little disappointed not to get over the line and get some points on the board but there was a clear gulf in class between the two sides. Skillwise I don't think we were too far off but we just couldn't match the Eagles physically. They were just bigger, stronger and faster across the board, but it was a good experience for the lads and will give us a few things to work on to continue to improve.
  2. There were two coaches from Thatto Heath - one parked inside the ground and the other outside somewhere. There was a mini bus on stadby too incase the second coach was over filled, but I don't know if this was used. One coach contained the players and a couple of dozen speccies and another one full of speccies. There were also quite a few people who travelled over in cars too.
  3. I'll go for 46-12 to the Eagles. Your speed and fitness should tell in the end but the size of the pitch should lend itself to the way we play the game and i'll back us to get over for a couple of good tries!
  4. Have the Eagles announced any change in prices for Sunday's game or will it be
  5. It has been confirmed as 3pm on Sunday 7th.
  6. Our website for those of you who are interested is www.thattoheathcrusaders.org To be honest a think that most of us were a little disappointed with the draw. We were looking for either a Skolars or Gateshead,that we'd have had a good chance against or a Widnes or Leigh for a good local tie that we could have got a lot of support at. Still it should be a good day out for our lads and we won't go home wondering what if. Should be an entertaining game for you lot, we tend to throw the ball around a bit and score quite a lot of long range tries too. A few names you may of come across in our ranks are Darren Woods (former Doncaster, Widnes, Swinton winger), Andy Bailey (Hull FC, York City Knights - forward), Keiron Maddocks (Leigh - hooker), Chris Frodsham (Workington, Swinton - utility back). Out of interest what do you reckon the crowd is likely to be? I'd imagine we'll bring a couple of coaches.
