The Cru should beat Rochdale (note should!) in a close game and I'll take Swinton to beat Donny. Although Donny dominated the first half last week against a weakened Crusaders side, the second half was different with the Cru 'winning' 12-6 and it wasn't a case of Donny putting the cue away thinking that the job was done but us working out their game plan.

They certainly won last week.  
The RFL disciplinary didn’t name names (too many?)

No charge!
“numerous players both sides”/ “number of players from both teams come together after a try is scored”/“push and shove each other. No punches thrown.”

Crusaders certainly didn't.

Hornets 36 - NWC 20

Hornets got the spoils comfortably, despite a last 10 minute relaxing spell to concede 10 points.

Cru's season seemed to derail once the coach announced he was leaving. Is that fair or injuries the main thing?

Combination of both.

 

Today we didn't get the rub of the green but then again we weren't in attacking positions often enough.

 

A really positive season for Crusaders considering our budget compared to the rest of the top 6. We definitely punched above our weight

Mainly injuries to be fair, the back end of the season hammered us. Last week before the Donny game we had to sign 2 amateurs and bring back Karl Ashall out of retirement to play - we were on our 'arrises 😞

Where are clubs budgets published? I'd be fascinated to have a look.
