25-26 May: The Betfred League 1 Match Thread

I'm looking forward to a cracking game between Bears and Crusaders this weekend. I counted as many as 5 ex Bears in the Crusaders line up last weekend so it's sure to be hard fought! 

The mens game is actually part of a double header with Army RL women playing Wigan Warriors women in a challenge cup game (KO. 5pm). Am really looking forward to that too. 

Who are the five MrC? The obvious DMS and Ben Stead.

Skolars leading in Cumbria. 

Unfortunately I’ve backed Skolars at 4/1 in a treble with Wire -6 and Oldham -6 so it’s only a matter of time before Whitehaven come back. Apologies.

Damn you  -  although we are doing ok at the moment. I expect a donation to the club if you get your treble.

Think my counting was out.  Others are Brad Brennan who came on loan from Barrow (I think) and Matt Reid. I'm sure there was another but I can't see it now

Sorry! Wasn’t to be today. Strong first half from London but faded in second with a few errors creeping in.

I like Crusaders and you’ve got some cracking players but you are a million miles away from even thinking about promotion. You’ll be doing well to finish above Coventry.

Agreed, they was re building just missed out on play offs league one cup final but made a change so will need a bit more time in my opinion but yeh have some good players for sure.

Good wins for Haven and Oldham today. Would not have said the top 2 at near the half way point of the season being Haven and Skolars. 

A big win against Keighley for Oldham. Not sure if that is Oldham being brilliant or Keighleys players being affected by the coach going. Makes Bears result against Oldham last week look pretty respectable. Still seems a crazy decision by Keighley when they were going well considering the disrupted preseason they had

Oldham were excellent today, best away performance for a long time. Keighley weren't great tbf but I don't think the coach going had much effect. Oldham pretty much dominated throughout and could have had 2 or 3 tries more but for dodgy finishing . Didn't expect to put 50 on Keighley, suffice to say the travelling Yeds fans and the players were ecstatic at the final hooter. 

Shaping up to be a very interesting league, no clear favourite and most games are incredibly competitive, hold onto your hats from now til the end of the season!

A very flat performance from the Bears at home today. Spent most of the game waiting for the Bears players to spring to life and, aside from a mini fightback mid way through the second half, it never happened. Was a very scrappy game and Bears gave away countless penalties. 

Crusaders were fully deserving of their win though. More creative and defended very well. Think they'll likely push on a bit now

Good win NWC. 

Shame about Bears.  I nearly got to the game too but for a late change of plan.  Hopefully one of those days for Cov and nothing more

A million miles??? List to Skolars by one point, lost to Oldham and Keighley by two. We've been poor are sei out games but we're definitely not a million miles away....

...and we are above Coventry after yesterday's win

The one thing we need for the rest of the season is consistency.....if we nail that, we're back in the top half of the table and having a say on the playoff picture 🙂

If we don't.... well, we'll see 😉


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

Very hard to predict who’ll end up in the top four. Cracking season.
