London Skolars v Celtic Crusaders preview

Celtic Crusaders will be hot favourites to take all six points from their first two Co-Operative National League Two matches this Easter weekend.

Their first match on Good Friday sees them travel to common ground as they face London Skolars at the New River Stadium before returning to the Brewery Field on Easter Monday to host Blackpool Panthers (both matches kick-off at 3pm)

Both London and Blackpool finished bottom of their Northern Rail Cup groups after failing to register a win. London have just one victory this season, 24-8 over West Bowling in the Carnegie Challenge Cup, while Blackpool have still to search for their first win after crashing out of the Cup 18-42 to French side, Pia.
