  1. Coming to terms with a comprehensive loss yesterday. I though Crusaders looked the better team for the first 20 minutes but we just couldn't score. Once Oldham got on the board they never looked like losing. Oldham are a very strong team for League 1 and would probably hold their own in the Championship. Well done to the Yeds on the win.... and I think they'll take the top spot to go up automatically. To add to our woes Workington won their game so 6th place is now a battle to hold onto, with a real tough run in. After we play Hunslet on 21st July at Eirias Park we have 4 consecutive away games in August at Workington, Keighley, Hunslet and Rochdale with a final home game against Cornwall on 1st September. We'll need to battle like we did last season to even get into the top 6 and perhaps other results may be our nemesis.
  2. All Away wins (...he said hopefully!!) Crusaders came within a whisker of beating Oldham at Eirias Park, we'll need our very best defence at Boundary Park to cause an upset. We CAN do it.
  3. Players - fed up of playing on ###### pitches? simply glue some rectangles of 4G surface to your boots before trotting out for the game
  4. Does this only apply to Leigh Leopards players?
  5. Well played Hurricanes; the better team won and although I thought our cards were very harsh and Hurricanes got away with a cheap shot on Carl Forster, I don't think the officials lost us the game. Hurricanes came with a good game plan and executed it well. Nice to meet you at Eirias Park. Good luck for the rest of the season
  6. I think I'll recognise you. I'm sure you were at the Alexandra Stadium and presented the ball for the game.
  7. Workington and Cougars to win confortably. North Wales Crusaders v Midlands Hurricanes will be be a close fought encounter. Midlands were the better team at the last fixture, preceded by a spectacular thunderstorm; lets hope we have fine weather and all the fireworks are on the pitch. Crusaders to edge it by a try.
  8. Are you coming to Colwyn Bay Tim? Lets catch up with a pint
  9. We still have another game against Cornwall - lets hope for a Crusaders win in Eirias Park on the last game of the season. Why not come up ans see us!
  10. Just got back from Cornwall - forgot to factor in the Glastonbury traffic on the M5 which was at a standstill for parts of the journey...a journey which took almost 9 hours!!. 693 miles to watch North Wales Crusaders! Was it worth it...damn right! 2 points in the bag, 3 wins on the bounce, we had some great weather, lovely food and a mini-holiday with some rugby league thrown in for good measure!
  11. Wins for Hurricanes, Oldham and Cougars. I'm already in Cornwall ready for the game. Hopefully we'll get the same sunshine we had today and we'll come away with another decent win to add to the winning streak we're on. Take nothing for granted though; the Choughs have turned us over before! Looking forward to a few beers and a pasty!
  12. Llongyfarchiadau to Wales Women, joining Wales Wheelchair RL in the Rugby League World Cup 2026...somewhere in the southern hemisphere (allegedly!)
  13. You got the Crusaders willing margin spot on! Well done....now do the next two games for us!!
  14. I went to the bookies but it was full of Torys voting on the election date!
  15. Toulouse Olympique, Bradford Bulls, Featherstone Rovers, Sheffield Eagles, Widnes Vikings, Wakefield Trinity, Whitehaven
  16. Convincing wins for Cougars and Oldham. Hunslet will squeeze past Hornets with home advantage. I'm hoping our win at home last weekend has generated some confidence and we get a good win at Newcastle Thunder. I want us to play with skill and discipline, defend well and cut out the errors and penalties.
  17. Just home from Eirias Park....and my heart rate is just about back to normal again. A pulsating game between two sides determined to overturn the ball once they'd scored! Crusaders threw a massive interception to Workington for them to go six points clear, then a further try to go 10 points behind, but Crusaders showed great character to win the game with grit and determination, despite Workington constantly trying to slow the play of the balls down. For me we desrved the win...but only just!
  18. Seems the takeover has been approved by the RFL https://www.nwcrusaders.co.uk/post/statement-elkaleh-takeover-approved-by-rfl Message from the new boss: “We now enter an exciting time for the club as a whole with plenty of positive stories to follow, and I look forward to meeting you all very soon. “This club means so much to all of us, I’m excited to embark on a journey together and bring success back to North Wales Crusaders as just reward for the hard work and dedication which you’ve all shown.”
  19. A deserving tribute to a very special man. I was in tears.
  20. R.I.P Rob Rob inspired me to raise some funds from MNDA last year, by cycling to a few North Wales Crusaders games at different grounds (Thatto Heath, Rochdale Hornets, Midlands Hurricanes and Cornwall). It was an incredible honour to be invited by MNDA to Headingley to take part in a reception with the Princess Royal. I met Rob and his family at the reception and it was evident how much he was loved and how much he inspired all the people that were at the reception. My thoughts with his family and friends.
  21. Absolutely gutted. Fair play to the lads today they put in a shift, but we should have shut the game down at 24-14. I have no idea of the penalty count in the second half but we let Oldham back in with a stream of soft penalties or mistakes. We really should have won that - fair play to Oldham for pressing and pressing and forcing us to defend for what seemed like a very long second half.
  22. I spoke to three of the Directors today and they were all very positive about the buyout. Personally, I'm waiting for the RFL to approve the deal, then for the fans forum to actually meet the new owner/investor. Sound like hes got a background with various RL clubs so I'm hopeful that this will see North Wales Crusaders flourish in the coming years.
