This article details the North Wales Crusaders Rugby League Football Club's 2012 season. This is the clubs first ever season after reforming following the former Super League club Crusaders Rugby League folding.

The club was founded in late 2011 and officially joined Championship 1, the third tier of rugby league in the United Kingdom, on 11 October 2011. Their name, which continues the Crusaders branding, was selected in a fan contest.[1][2] Clive Griffiths was confirmed as North Wales Crusaders Head Coach on 23 November[3] and started his search for players. The club held open trials for any new players to attend,[4] as well as scouring the local amateur game and signing players from Super League academies.

2012 Squad[edit]

Provisional squad[edit]

As part of the 'Operational Guidelines' set out by the Rugby Football League, North Wales Crusaders were instructed to submit a provisional squad of 30 players for Championship 1 2012. Due to the club recruiting players they weren't in a position to do so.[28] Crusaders decided to let supporters apply to become part of the provisional squad whilst they continued to sign players.[29]
