The successors to Super League club Crusaders will be known as North Wales Crusaders, the consortium behind the new outfit has announced.

The Wrexham-based club is expected to be incorporated into Championship One in 2012 after Crusaders were dissolved.

The name emerged top of an online poll and the NW Crusaders set up a north Wales v south Wales clash with the Neath-based Scorpions in the third tier.

Mark Rowley, general manager of Wales Rugby League, said: "Congratulations to the new north Wales club for the way that they have set themselves up in such a short space of time.

"We've never had a north Wales v south Wales clash in professional rugby league before so next season will see some historic games."
