Some close games and could be a few upsets. I’ll be radical and go all home wins.

I see your deliberate error.You definitely don't spell irrational with the letters radical.😜

Slightly more seriously,despite this - https://www.loverugbyleague.com/post/north-wales-crusaders-sign-new-stadium-deal/

Are Crusaders definitely playing there in 2023? Could they play Championship games on a Monday night at the venue?

Could any problems there be a reason for Murray et al to leave the club?

That stated,are Rochdale remaining at Spotland after December - will there be promotion at the end of 2023?

Not all home wins will be my forecast.

It may have been a bit tongue in cheek Paul but it is possible. The way you battered us at home a couple of months ago would suggest that you’ll go undefeated this year. Eminently possible but Donny are no pushovers and if you have a bad game…….

Thanks for the link regarding Eirias Park it’s the first I’ve seen of it. It actually suits even though it’s 45 minutes from Wrexham and crowds have improved although along with other teams we could do with more support. Regarding a Monday night game there I can’t see this being a problem.

 Anthony Murray and his team leaving came right out of the blue. Was it anything to do with our current ground I can’t think it would be. I’ve made enquiries about his leaving but things are pretty quiet on that front but no doubt we’ll know eventually. 

Anyway mate good luck for the rest of the season and hopefully we’ll both be promoted this year.

Am I right to presume tickets are not sold in advance for West Wales games?

Cash / card on the turnstile?

 

You won't need a ticket Tim....

As Bearman alluded to Hurricanes have a horrendous injury list this week. No excuses I still think we have enough quality to win but I've never seen anything like how this season has panned out injury wise. Probably around 15 of the squad unavailable! Fingers crossed a few walking wounded will be back

Last week against Swinton it was £10  and £5 for concessions. Cash only -no cards

A real pressure game for Crusaders which I'm predicting we will win by 6. Rochdale will have a few out looking at their disciplinary record and an assured performance from Crusaders should see us keeping our second spot.

Will Keighley Cougars stutter? I don't think so. Doncaster will push them close if they play to form. Cougars by 2.

Despite the Hurricanes injury list they'll still be too strong for Raiders. Comfortable win for 'Canes

Swinton will beat Hunslet at home. Swinton by 10.

Cornwall will make Oldham play up the slope in the second half and nick a win....but only if they keep all their players on the pitch and ensure the ref keeps his cards in his pockets. A good disciplined game will see them win by 6.

After strangely missing a week (dunno what happened there...)

Cru by double-digits, just

Canes by a fair few

Yeds by a few

Swinton by double figures

Dons/Cougars will be interesting, may be very close....draw anyone??

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

A draw would still see Cougars winning the league and they'd still be unbeaten!.....but I doubt Cougars fans would be happy with that and I'm sure the team will want a win. I think you're right though, it will be close.

North Wales Crusaders v Rochdale Hornets - Cru by 14
West Wales Raiders v Midlands Hurricanes - Midlands by 30
Cornwall v Oldham - Cornwall by 8 with a last 10 minute take of the lead
Doncaster v Keighley Cougars - Keighley by 4
Swinton Lions v Hunslet - Swinton comfortably.

 

Great to see the world cup trophies in Cornwall this weekend. Let's hope the promotion work that has gone into this by the club pays off in attendance. I'll go for a 1250 at the Mem Ground on Sunday.

Just when one hoped the sport of rugby league couldn't  get any more idiotic...

https://www.totalrl.com/loan-rules-changed-as-clubs-complete-transfer-business-before-deadline/

What is the point?

Player on loan at one club,after due date,now joins another club,a calendar month after the date.

If the rules are not to be enforced - remove the ruling.

IMG will never rescue the sport.Too far gone.

Anything goes in League One.I hope I'm going.

In fairness lots of clubs have huge injury lists this year. I suspect hard pitches has something to do with it

I've a sneaking feeling we might do this. Horne has put a lot of faith in his backs. Loss of Fella at prop will hopefully be mitigated by Wilkinson. A lot will depend on how the 3 halves, Boas, Robinson and Johnston are used
