Rhinos Backlash to Batter Reds
Posted by southstander on April 13 2009 - 08:42:11

Bombers Run
After friday nights shock defeat to the Bulls, the Rhinos go into this afternoons Easter Monday fixture desperate for a confidence boosting win. And of all the sides you'd pick to be playing against, Salford would have been one of Leeds choices.

The Reds have never beaten the Rhinos during the Superleague era. There have been thirteen meetings, and thirteen straight Rhinos wins.

Can we get back on the bike and keep this run going?

We preview the game here...

Bluey names an unchanged nineteen from friday nights shocker in Bradford. You have to suspect that he will stick with the same seventeen too, and give them a chance to put the record straight. Kallum Watkins and Keith Senior will be hoping that the ball stays in hand more than it did on friday and Brent Webb will not get involved in a play where he was stood in-front of the play-the-ball. No video referee for this one though, so at least we won't have Thierry Aliberst bizarre decisions to contend with.

There are many occasions where we have come up against a side coached by Sean McRae fearing the worst, but today isn't one of those days.

Salford should have Mark Henry and Karl Fitzpatrick back in the side and after two consecutive wins (cup against Hull and league against Warrington) they will be in a better and more confident frame of mind against the side who have lost three out of their last four. McRae's nineteen to choose from is; Fitzpatrick, Wilshere, McGilvray, Henry, Smith, Myler, Sidlow, Cashmere, Alker, Stapleton, Parker, Swain, Turner, Littler, Leuluai, Paul, Ratchford, Adamson, and Jewitt.

Three Reds to watch;




The last time that we played the Reds at Headingley was in August 2007 when the Rhinos decimated the relegation doomed Salford outfit by 52-14. Earlier that season we'd scraped a 30-26 win at the Willows against a much different Salford side. Their previous Headingley visit was in March 2006 when Leeds were much closer winners by just 20-12. Prediction
Rhinos 28 10 Reds

Just like friday night I can see no other outcome than a comfortable Rhinos victory. I just hope that I am not as wrong today as I was when we travelled to Odsal.

After forecasting poor Easter Monday weather all week the outlook for this afternoon is now pretty good with sunshine and the occasional cloud. There is a low chance of rain so the conditions should be fine for a great game of rugby.

The bookies given the Reds a twenty-two point start and are obviously expecting a bit of a backlash. I think that is a little bit too much and would expect a closer game.

See you there, enjoy the game.
