ALREADY guaranteed a spot in the end-of-season play-offs, North Wales Crusaders will be aiming to secure as lofty a League 1 finish as possible over the remaining six matches.

Defeats on Sunday for Oldham, Midlands Hurricanes and London Skolars mean that North Wales cannot be dislodged from the top-six between now and the end of the campaign.

Crusaders' 76-4 thrashing of West Wales Raiders saw Anthony Murray's men maintain their grip on second place and they will be looking for more of the same in tomorrow's key home clash with Hunslet, who are sixth.

"There are six games to go and it's largely possible we are going to be in those play-offs, which was always the goal," said Murray.

"We are just jostling for position now,

"Anybody in that top-six can finish anywhere.

"That's how competitive it is.

"Just being in the play-offs is the total aim.

"Building momentum going into those play-offs is what we're looking for."

Before the end of the season, Crusaders will also tackle other fellow top-six sides in the shape of Rochdale Hornets, leaders Keighley Cougars and Swinton Lions.
