North Wales Crusaders host Doncaster at Queensway Stadium tomorrow in their opening match of the League 1 campaign.

Below is everything you need to know ahead of the clash.


Crusaders will be hoping to back up their 64-6 victory at Rochdale Mayfield in the third round of the Challenge Cup.

Despite being pushed all the way by Mayfield in the first-half, North Wales led 16-0 at the break.

In the second-half, though, they ran riot and crossed for an impressive seven tries in a 16-minute spell.

Doncaster, meanwhile, survived a bit of a scare against amateur club Thornhill Trojans in the cup.

The Trojans led 20-18 heading into the final couple of minutes, but the Dons struck late through Watson Boas.


Crusaders and Doncaster have come up against each other on 12 occasions in total.

The Dons have won ten of those clashes, with North Wales victorious in the other two.

One of the wins came last season as the Wrexham club clinched a 12-10 success at the Keepmoat Stadium.


Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray wants his side to build on their second-half display at Rochdale when they take on Doncaster.


Murray has named the same 21-man squad that he did for the cup clash with Mayfield.


Entry to the clash between Crusaders and the Dons is priced at £12 for adults and £10 for concessions, with U16s going completely free of charge.

Crusaders’ official matchday programme is available once again in 2020 and you can purchase it around the stadium for just £2.
