Barrow, Cougars, Town and a draw at Hunslet. 

Don't like predicting our game, but we are at home and we are on a roll and we will have a big crowd,......so lets make it seven on the trot!

With growing interest in the Cru, no Super League or Championship games on Saturday, and the usual Bank Holiday influx of "heartlanders" in to North Wales, I think there's a good chance of our first four figure crowd since our Championship season in 2014.

A win for us will see us equal our longest winning run of 7 games and could effectively see us securing a playoff place (assuming there are no more covid postponements). This would be a fantastic achievement considering we had to leave Wrexham to survive just four month ago. No wonder the whole club is buzzing at the moment.

Of course Rochdale will have their own ideas about the importance of winning, so it promises to be another great game at Stadiwn Zip World. So if you are in North Wales for the weekend, please pop over to Colwyn Bay on Saturday, you won't be disappointed.

Any Super League fans attending the game, please, please, bring your chairman with you so that he can see the value of League 1.

Plenty of sunshine headin' our way;  At Stadiwm Zip World, Colwyn Bay!

Could yet again be that crowds for Barrow and NWC outstrip some Championship crowds here. 

That's a fairly common occurrence. Workington got a crowd of 1,457 last week, higher than at least 2 of the Championship games. In fact I'd say ours and Barrow's average for this season is higher than about 6 of the Championship clubs.

I’m not prejudiced, I hate everybody equally

Yep. Swinton, Shef, Oldham, Batley , Dewsbury and Broncos. Hopefully with Oldham and Swinton down the two coming up give it a bit more of a boost.

Barrow's gate may be down a bit on Saturday - the football team are at home to Bristol Rovers 3 pm) which, for some folk who follow both clubs is probably a better attraction than Raiders v. Skolars.(2 pm) Don't know why we are playing on Saturday unless it's at London's request.  A thousand plus after two defeats at Crusaders ad Donny would be a good turn-out

Haven are only averaging 750 ish compared to Town’s 1,045. Bit odd really cos Haven have had a pretty good season on the pitch.

Some councils might have different restrictions as well. Just nice to know that the three teams likely to go up will all bring more to the comp than those going down.

I'm backing Bears to pull off an away win here having found their missing mojo last Sunday.

With Doncaster and Rochdale to come, this is a great opportunity to get on a roll for the remainder of the season.

Really strong squad. I'd take Matty Beharell's selection with a pinch of salt. If he's playing and he's fit I'll be delighted. Fantastic scrum half. Possibly the most competitive player I've seen for us. Old school half.
