    Thanks Dan.
    Just to let you know that the Crusaders are on -2 as they started on -4 due to when they fell under administration.
    I saw highlights of the Bradford/Leeds game..It was a cracker..

  2. Ashley says:

    Are university of West Indies new to the competition this year?

    Also, Druzik, have you noticed in the challenge cup draw that Lezignan are the only French Elite league team included? I thought there was normally three or four elite league teams.

      No, UWI have been round for a few years now playing Rugby League, Mico is the new team.

      I knew Lezignan were in the CC, but didn’t realise they were the only ones, I will go and investigate this further… give me a bit fo time as I am a bit snowed under at work the next week.
