Celtic Crusaders' Operations Manager has described his side's win over Leigh Centurions on Sunday as "the biggest win we've ever had".
Wales' only professional side produced the shock on the round in the Northern Rail Cup last weekend when they beat the Super League promotion contenders 26-22 at Hilton Park in Leigh. The English club will be looking for revenge when they face the Crusaders again at the Brewery Field on Sunday 18th March (kick-off 4pm).
"It was a fantastic day," said McCarthy. "It's definitely the biggest win we've ever had. Leigh were in Super League a couple of years ago and no-one expected us to even get near them. The Leigh supporters showed outstanding sportsmanship and gave us a standing ovation at the end of the game - they are a credit to to Rugby League. We are all looking forward to the return fixture on the 18th March."
Highlights of this match, one of the best games to ever feature a Welsh rugby league club will fittingly be shown on St. David's Day on satellite channel, Channel M's "Code XIII" programme this Thursday at 7pm.
