No offence to West Wales, but we simply HAVE TO WIN on Friday.

With Wrexham FC playing at home at the same time, our "dual reg" fans will more likely be at the Racecourse, so not expecting much more than 200 die hard supporters at the game. Hopefully some exiles will be home for the weekend to help pay for the double rent being charged for the ground because of the bank holiday.

Not going to tempt fate predicting ours, but I'm going for home wins for the rest except for Doncaster.

Two hundred home fans? That’s sad to see. I saw a few games at the Racecourse in 2015, the crowds were above 1000 on both occasions. 

You've had a bad start to this season but you’ll have too much experience for West Wales. A comfy home win I reckon. Good luck.

Looks like I'll be able to attend my first game of the season on Friday ? As you rightly said, NEED/MUST WIN and in a good fashion....if we scrape past WWR with a 2-score margin I think we'll have to reappraise how much of a rebuilding season this is going to be....

cru....Cru.....CRUSADERS!!!!!!

I am going to demonstrate my tactical genius and emulate our London Skolars fan who stated that he doubted his side would win another game all season,and the following week London Skolars defeated high-flying Workington.

I hereby declare that I cannot see West Wales Raiders win a game for the remainder of the season.

 

     No reserves,but resilience,persistence and determination are omnipotent.

Massive cumbria derby game , whitehaven surprise joint league leaders , workington seen as promotion favourites  by some . A game where the pressure is on the home team as a loss would be a big blow for top spot hopes . Form says whitehaven but form does not usually come to play in big rival derby games , a try in it either way .

Coventry Bears v London Skolars  - Bears win
Keighley Cougars v Doncaster - Doncaster win
Oldham v Hunslet - Hmmm, draw!
Workington Town v Whitehaven - Town win, just

North Wales Crusaders v West Wales Raiders - We've never lost to South/West Wales yet and we're not going to start this week. The lads owe the fans a decent performance. We showed glimpses against London Skolars in the Challenge Cup but nothing like good enough. This game we have to be clinical and convincing. Crusaders win (obviously!)
