  • @HeinF (Comment 2) : Crusaders beating the Rebels should be a given, but I have so little confidence in them that I went for a bye this weekend.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 4) : I was also considering the bye…but sooner or later I have to pick the crusaders and on their current form, it will have to be against either the rebels or the force ;-)
