NORTH WALES CRUSADERS will look to return to winning ways this weekend as they travel to Derwent Park to take on Workington Town.
The Betfred League One clash will see Anthony Murray’s side look to put back-to-back defeats behind them, whilst Workington will be looking to get back to form themselves having suffered a defeat to Hunslet at the South Leeds Stadium last weekend.
The Cumbrian side have not held back this season, and their recruitment has signalled their intentions to be fighting at the top of the league.
With the likes of Ryan Bailey, Fuifui Moimoi, Jordan Tansey and more all putting pen to paper at Derwent Park, Workington have a side packed with experience.
They have enjoyed a mixed start to the season with defeats to Keighley, Whitehaven and Hunslet coupled with victories over Bradford West Wales Raiders and London Skolars.
However, Leon Pryce’s side will now be looking to push on and continue their march towards the top of the table
One To Watch:
Workington’s side is packed with talented and experienced players, and one of those is utility back Jordan Tansey.
Tansey will be a familiar face to many Crusaders supporters who will remember his spell at the Super League club.
Taney made his Super League debut in 2006 for Leeds Rhinos before going on to make appearances for Hull, Castleford, Wakefield, Huddersfield and Crusaders.
Having arrived in Cumbria just a few months ago, Tansey has already shown his talents for Workington, and will be a player to keep and eye on come Sunday’s game.
Murray On Workington:
North Wales Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray had his say on Sunday’s opponents: “Workington have spent a lot of money and have made their intentions clear, he said.
“They’ve brought some big names in, and you don’t recruit like they have unless you have ambitions of being top of the table and gaining promotion.
“They are coming off the back of a defeat, as are we, so I think we’re in for a hard fought game between two sides who want to get back to winning ways.”
