CARL FORSTER has been reflecting on a job well done as North Wales Crusaders remain undefeated in League One this season.

Crusaders continued their winning start to the league campaign with a 58-18 win over Newcastle Thunder and next up is a big trip to fellow undefeated side Keighley Cougars on Sunday.

“It’s job well done at the minute,” head coach Forster told CruCast.

“We expected the three wins. That was our main requirement in the group.

“So, we’ve stayed on course with that and, obviously, now we know it’s going to get a lot tougher, but we’ll set some new goals and we’ll go again.”

Matt Reid crossed for two early tries against Newcastle, but he picked up a first half injury and he will be missing for the trip to Keighley.

Jack Holmes, Pat Ah Van, Shaun Costello, Matt Fletcher and Ryan Ellis also crossed the whitewash, while Forster maintained his own prolific start to the season with a pair of tries.

This means he has scored five tries in the opening three matches.

Forster said: “I’d have probably took five before the season started, for the season! I don’t think I got five last year, did I? So, sometimes, it’s the right place at the right time.

“I think we’ve got a real good threat down the middle using our big lads near the line and that’s obviously how I got over and Cozzy (Shaun Costello) put me one-on-one with their half-back for the second try.

“Great ball by Cozzy, he did the hard work and I caught the ball and put it over the line. So, it’s always nice to score because that means you’re contributing to the scoreboard and obviously putting us in a better spot.”
