It was the start of a new season and the Crushers were ready for the challenges of super series 1. Playing with them again would be Coral Batey and not just for super series 1 but for the whole of the year as fully fledged member of the Crushers.
What a first day for the Crushers, game one was a close win against the Ospreys 49 – 43 before a comfortable victory against Titans 52 – 18. Unfortunately though the Crushers couldn’t top the day off with a hat-trick of wins, going down to Burn by six points with the final score 38 – 32.
Day two and the Crushers would be up against tough opposition in the Hawks and a rematch with Burn. The game against Hawks would be a close run thing, going right to the wire with the Hawks taking the victory by four points. In the final game of the weekend the Crushers were out to exact revenge on Burn, after the result the previous day, and sure enough they did with a five point win 42 – 37.
It was a very successful super series 1, winning three out if their five games and finishing in third place in the second division table.
