North Wales Crusaders travel to Whitehaven tomorrow as they return to League 1 action.

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


Crusaders will be looking to respond to their 48-12 defeat at home to Newcastle Thunder last time out.

Thunder proved too strong for Anthony Murray’s men on the day, with fullback Lewis Young running riot throughout.

Whitehaven, meanwhile, fell to only their second defeat of the League 1 campaign last weekend, losing 26-20 at Newcastle.

After leading 8-6 at the break, Haven extended their advantage to 14-6 early in the second-half.

Newcastle took control, though, and Young’s try on the full-time hooter wrapped up the points for the North-West side.


The two sides met at Queensway Stadium just over a month ago, with Whitehaven running out 28-14 winners.

After Ben Stead had kicked an early penalty goal for Crusaders, Haven grew into the game and established a 16-2 advantage by half-time.

Although a try from Callum Phillips shortly after the break nudged the Cumbrians further ahead, Kenny Baker and Rob Massam tries within the space of three minutes pulled North Wales back into the game.

The hosts had opportunities to claw the deficit back further, but a late try sealed what was a deserved victory for Whitehaven on the balance of play.
