North Wales Crusaders travel to London Skolars on Sunday for their third round Challenge Cup tie.

Below is all the information you need to know ahead of the clash.


Crusaders fell to an agonising defeat against Oldham at Queensway Stadium last time out.

After trailing 14-0 with an hour gone, Oldham struck three times in the final 20 minutes to steal the two points from Crusaders.

It was an improved performance from Crusaders on their 48-18 defeat at Workington Town in their League 1 opener, although they pushed the Cumbrians all the way for large parts of the match on that occasion.

London, meanwhile, were beaten 48-12 by Newcastle Thunder at New River Stadium last weekend.

As Skolars led 12-10 at the break, it looked like Newcastle were heading for another defeat in League 1, but they turned it around in the second-half as they kept London scoreless in the final 40 minutes.

However, Skolars did win their opening league fixture as they came out on top 28-18 at West Wales Raiders.

The Welsh side made London work hard for their victory, but the visitors ultimately had too much class towards the end of the match.


North Wales won 36-28 at London Skolars in June 2018 when the two clubs last came head-to-head.

The match was nip-and-tuck for large parts and Skolars led 16-10 at the break.

However, Crusaders took control in the second-half and a try from Kenny Baker put daylight between the sides late on.
