That's a great effort from Midland's Hurricanes against the form team - augers well for the rest of the season

The form team but several first choice missing and playing out of position... it's going to be a long old season..

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

You can say that again! Comes down to what I've posted in the past, that at this level squads are a bit thin - lose a couple of key players and teams can end up in the do-do as we nearly did today. However we did get the points and I thought that the Hurricanes looked a useful outfit. With the posh new ground beckoning there's the potential there for a successful team - and at a higher level.

Hurricanes also have several missing through injury and had to reshuffle ahead of the game. You won the game, no need for excuses

Yep......I'll take the win and two points all day.

Hurricanes played well but Crusaders made far to many errors. Our set completion rate was woeful and we kept letting Hurricanes off-load. Hurricanes were well worth their lead at half time and thankfully we showed a bit more composure in the second half.

Perhaps last weeks game against Swinton took a lot out of both teams.

After seeing the cougars-lions score I was thinking that too, I didn't think that would have been the score in a million years.

 

Also fits in with Chronicler's point about squads being a bit thin down this division.

Thanks to the Crusaders club for a warm welcome on a lovely sunny day.

But for a couple of pieces of bad 'luck' we would have seen a well-deserved Hurricanes win. Not complaining though because that's how sport goes. 

If we carry that form into next week's game against Hunslet then we have a great chance of beating them. We defended well but still need to be a little more inventive at the other end.

You'll beat quite a few teams this year. Some big powerful guys running up the middle and your centre (No 4) has a good offload too. Best of luck (except when we play you at your place, of course!)
