Murrell was rewarded for his display in Halifax’s 60-10 Kingstone Press Championship win over Leigh Centurions, while Moulsdale was similarly impressive in his side’s 44-6 victory over London Skolars.
Moulsdale now moves to the top of the Championship One Player of the Year table, while Mitchell Stringer extended his lead in the Championship after earning three points in his side’s win over Barrow.
The former Hull KR playmaker showed his top-flight experience with an influential display in the big win.
Halifax coach Karl Harrison said: “Scott has been instrumental in a lot of things that we’ve done this season.
“When we lost Sean Penkywicz in the close season we had to rebuild our offensive game, and Scott has taken a lot of that on.
“He has great organisation skills and his kicking game has been sensational.”
Crusaders coach Clive Griffiths said: “Andy sits back and reads the game well, and he’s a good leader too. He came in last year, found his feet and he possesses all the qualities of a good half-back. He’s one of our key men.”
North Wales were only ahead 12-6 at half time, but Moulsdale’s display helped the hosts claim six unanswered tries in the second half. “To score that many points was fantastic,” said Griffiths.
