South Wales Scorpions ready for North Wales Crusaders in Welsh derby

In a sign of how far rugby league has come in Wales the South Wales Scorpions prepare to take on the North Wales Crusaders at the Gnoll in neath this weekend. Both teams play in the Championship 1 competition which is the third tier of rugby league in the UK.

The game is all the more significant as some of the players might just end up in the Welsh World Cup squad come 2013. Rugby League Planet brings you the latest from both camps:
