Congratulations to the Crusaders

Well done to the Crusaders for winning a place in the play-offs of the Superleague in their first season at Wrecsam. Tonight's game against Hull KR was end-to-end stuff with the game only clinched in the last two minutes with a great try. "Captain Jack" Sammut was the game changer and deserved man of the match.
Some longstanding Crusaders fans from Bridgend, speaking after the game, were full of praise for the switch to Wrecsam: "Without the move, the Crusaders would never have made the play-offs".
Mike Turner, Crusaders chief executive, joined in the celebrations in the Turf afterwards, saying he'd never seen at atmosphere like tonight. For me, it was as good an atmosphere as some of the legendary Wrexham FC cup games of the 70s.
Excited? You bet.
Let's hope those in the directors' box - who included one John Prescott - enjoyed the fun.
