A MAJOR challenge it may be, but North Wales Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray is taking heart from a superb knockout triumph ahead of a super Sunday in League 1.

Two 100 per cent winning records will be on the line as Swinton Lions host the Crusaders in the league's biggest match of the season so far.

The duo have already faced each other this season, with the North Wales side impressively coming out on top 20-14 at Heywood Road in the third round of the Challenge Cup.

"That was then and this is now," said Murray, who was pleased with his side's showing in last weekend's 54-6 success at London Skolars.

"What it does say to our players is we are capable of beating Swinton if we do the right things.

"If we look after the penalty count and errors, it puts you in a position to be competitive.

"It puts you in a position where maybe you could win the game."
