  1. Toulouse Olympique for me - purely so I can go to the first all-French Super League game between Catalans and TO XIII
  2. I'll be there....Catalans are my Super League team and have been since Crusaders RL folded. I wasn't sure we'd get rugby league in North Wales at the time so a few of us decided to bolster the UK support for Catalans (Catalans Dragons Supporters Group (Welsh Branch)), but we've been across to Perpignan a couple of time to watch them and to that wonderful Challenge Cup win. Allez les Dracs
  3. Well I called a close game between Keighley and Doncaster - and you couldn't get much closer!! I think this will be another tight game - maybe even a golden point game. I'll go with Workington, purely because they'll have their home support behind them.
  4. WOW!! Doncaster score a try on the hooter and win the game 26 - 28 with the lst kick of the game. Well done to both sides. A super game to watch as a neutral
  5. Keighley for me....just. Home advantage and the Cougars coach will have watch how Crusaders came back at them in Colwyn Bay. It'll be close - could even go to Golden Point.
  6. I think vs Keighley it was 771, not sure about yesterday; I'll make some enquiries but I'd say over 600
  7. Llongyfarchiadau/ Congratulations to Doncaster on their win yesterday. As most posters have said a game of two halves, but we needed to play for 80 minutes. Fair play to Doncaster they stuck at it and got the win. Very proud of our team this season; third in the league and two playoff games with probably one of the lowest budgets in League 1. Farewell to Karl Ashall and Warren Thomson who played their last game for Crusaders; thanks for all the happy memories fellas. Good luck to the 3 remaining teams in their battle for promotion.
  8. Pitch here for League 1. As a North Wales Crusaders supporter I've seen some excellent games this season, and although we lost our first playoff game to Keighley it was a really exciting game with some excellent rugby played. Just a shame it doesn't get more exposure and the powers that be don't seem interested in saving a valuable asset
  9. Both get regular first choice places. Hazzard is a really class player and Alex is one of those guys who does a lot without getting the praise he deserves. I hope we can hold on to both of them next season.
  10. Hi All Doncaster fans, As you'll be aware we now play at the Sadiwm Zip World, Parc Eirias, Abergele Road, Old Colwyn, Colwyn Bay, LL29 7SP. Come off the A55 at junction 22. left after the off ramp, right at the mini roundabout and Zip World is about 600m on the right. Match tickets available through the North Wales Crusaders website or pay cash on the gate. https://shop.northwalescrusaders.com/product/crusaders-v-doncaster-play-offs-ticket/ From 3pm its Happy hour and its £2 for Wrexham Lager and Bootlegger Pilsner (both excellent beers) Have a safe trip to North Wales and expect a warm welcome (croeso cynnes) After the game we drink at the Park Hotel, Colwyn Bay about 500m from the stadium; again all welcome.

  12. Think this will be very close. I've gone for Keighley but not with any confidence. Whoever wins will still have a tough game.
  13. Rob if your at Eirias Park on Sunday I'll be on the players entrance doing the temperature checks. Pop over and say hello and I'll by you a pint....you'll need one after 70 years of adversity.
  14. I am confident as North Wales Crusaders will have their 18th player - the Crusaders Supporters...
  15. I admire your confidence - but Crusaders will want this, and want it badly. In fact it was Doncaster that kick-started our season....after the pasting we took, it evidently fired up the team to go onto a 7 game winning streak. I think the loss to Keighley and the incredible support the team received at the end of the game will inspire our players. I think it will be close but Crusaders to win.
  16. Theres very little point in complaining about the ref but I did think he made some odd decisions in the first half - he particularly hammered us on the "6 agains" but not Keighley. And I wasn't convinced there was downward pressure for your second try. Agree you tie Rob Massam up with some good kicking. Disagree that the "only pressure" was when you were down to 12. I thought it was much closer and Santi two tries were the difference between the two teams. Murrell is an excellent kicker and controls the game really well; hes done that twice against us. Good luck against Workington - we could meet at your place for the Grand Final!
  17. Hopefully more of this on Sky and the Our League app. A shame they didn't show the Championship final between Hereford Harriers and Warrington Wolves - another cracking game. There are a couple of games pencilled in for Wales Wheelchair RL - both in Glyndwr University Wrexham - vs Ireland on 16th October and vs Scotland on 30th October. Be great to get a few spectators there. Congratulations to Leeds and Hereford on winning their Grand Finals
  18. Well player Cougars. Crusaders had the momentum and at 14 all I thought if we scored next we would have won but the penalty to give Cougars the 14-16 lead changed the game and momentum swung back to Cougars. Very disappointed to lose but on reflection this morning Cougars were worthy winners. An absolutely fantastic atmosphere in Zip World created by two fabulous sets of fans. The Cru fans just wouldn't be out-sang by the travelling Cougars fans at the end of the game. Good luck to Cougars in your game against Workington next weekend.
  19. Got to go with Crusaders of course, and I'll plump for Doncaster in the Eliminator. I just hope the game at Eirias Park is easier on the nerves than our last home game against Keighley Cougars when we raced into a 26-0 lead, only to lose the lead 26-28 but then squeezed a very nervous win in the end! But I'd take that over a loss!
