  1. I'll miss my first Crusaders game of 2022 as I have a commitment elsewhere but I'll have one eye on the Twitter feed watching the results. Hopefully we can keep our Challenge Cup form and come away from London with another two points and a convincing win.
  2. Theres some great historical background and context about the Cathars in Kate Mosse's books such as 'Labyrynth', 'Sepulcre' and 'Citadel'
  3. How many may have turned it down without any public announcement? Hopefully lots
  4. I went to watch France v Wales the last time we played in Albi and won the European Cup. What a beautiful city.
  5. The dates of some #NWCrusaders home fixtures in have been changed... Midlands Hurricanes - Sunday, April 24 - 2.30pm West Wales Raiders - Sunday, May 1 - 2.30pm Doncaster Rugby League - Sunday, June 26 - 2.30pm London Skolars Rugby League - Sunday, July 3 - 2.30pm
  6. Midlands Hurricanes fits to the tune of 'Knees up Mother Brown"....you're welcome!
  7. North Wales Crusaders v Cornwall - a little bit of history Cornwall first ever game, first League 1 game and we play for the Celtic Shield. I hope Corwall do well this season but the way weve played so far we should get a win - but lets not be complacent. elsewhere: Hornets Hunslet Cougars Lions
  8. I understand that some games will revert to Sundays at 2:30, but nothing has been announced as yet. I know our CEO has been in discussions with the Conwy Council and the Stadium, so I expect the fixture changes will be announced soon. Its understandable that playing Cornwall would be a later kick off to accommodate the team travelling almost 400 miles to get to Conwy.
  9. RFL funding? The funding that has been cut bu over 60% - that funding. How does that encourage ANY League 1 team to develop anyone - but yes,we do have a Foundation and two Wheelchair teams in the national leagues (one in Super League and one in the Championship) and are trying hard to encourage local players with North Wales Origin....and we do have, and have had Welsh players in our squad since our inception.
  10. We were playing some really attractive rugby for the firt 20 minutes and I though this is going to be an easy win....but then Rochdale had some luck and some interesting decisions go their way and they were back in the game....and every time Crusaders looked to pull away again back came Rochdale with their big forwards crashing over to score. The ref was very consistent with his off side and high tackle decisions but there were some curiosities which I'd love to see again. Well done to Hornets for putting up resistance but I think you ought to buy your timekeeper a new watch!
  11. North Wales Crusaders have had a very good pre-season beating Hunslet and Swinton and putting 30 points on a decent Sheffield Eagles team. I'm hoping we can carry this form into the League 1 season and start with a win - it will be hard fought but definitely doable. Crusaders by 4 points Elsewhere:- Hunslet, Doncaster, Oldham and Swinton.
  12. It is - the stadium in Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay is now know as Stadiwm Eirias..... You'll be made very welcome.
  13. I'd hope this fixture will attract 800 or so, its our first fixture in Stadiwm Eirias in 2022 and I'm hoping we get good support from across North Wales, particularly from the Wrexham and Conwy areas but theres scope for fans from right across North West England as wel. We usually get a few Oldham, Swinton, Saints and Warrington fans along so hopefully we'll get a decent crowd.
  14. The last League 1 club in the Competition play Sheffield Eagles at Stadiwm Eirias on Saturday 12th March. Kick off is at 1:30 Tickets are £12 for Adults, £10 for concessions and U-16s are free. There's a Supporters bus running from the Turf Hotel, Mold Road Wrexham leaving at 11:45. Book your place at £10 per person at crufansbus@gmail.com
  15. A great fixture for the club. The home fans can get Stadiwm Eirias rocking and given our current form Sheffield Eagles wont take the fixture lightly.
  16. A great second half from North Wales Crusaders - two slight errors and no penalties.....superb defence and no points conceded. Brilliant display by all our pleayers.
  17. We have to play at Eirias Park. The WRU have more clout with the stadium owners. it would be fantastic if we wre in a position of strength but we're not. It is what it is, however annoying and unfair.
  18. I could sort of live with the decision of us not playing in the Zip WOrl Staium on 27th Feb IF the RGC team had been stopped too. To me it just smacks of some old-fashioned anti-League WRU blazer-wearing duffer making a decision with absolutely no consequences for them whatsoever. You're absolutely right about Andy Moulsdale - hes been working non-stop to get this fixture sorted and deserved our immense gratitude.
