Costello Looking To Reward Fans

As North Wales Crusaders prepare to face Keighley Cougars this Sunday, Crusaders' Shaun Costello says he's raring to go as two of the division's 100% records go head-to-head in Yorkshire.

Costello has been ever present this season, with a try to his name against Newcastle Thunder last Sunday.

Reflecting on the season so far, the 25-year-old said: "The last three wins have been really good, we are building some momentum going into the Keighley game.

"There have been games we have been expected to win, but it has been great to help the new lads find their feet within the squad and build new combinations."

Residing in St Helens, Costello was a regular feature in Forster's squad last season making 17 appearances.

Looking ahead to Sunday, the former Clock Face and England Lions product said: "We have to compete for the full 80 minutes and have a high completion rate.

"If we complete high, I'm sure we won't be far away come Sunday.

"It's a step up from anything we've faced so far, Keighley have a big physical middle that we will need to match, and they have a lot of strike players which we will need to deal with if we are going to give ourselves a chance."

North Wales Crusaders have a proud and loyal fan base who will travel in numbers on Sunday, Costello adds: "Our fans have been amazing all year to be honest, I hope they can come to Keighley in their numbers, and hopefully we can give them something to shout about."
