A Right Royal Match Up
Posted by southstander on April 28 2011 - 12:36:43

The time for feeling sorry for our country cousins has passed as the 2011 Superleague tables are turned and it is the lads from Cas who are looking beneath them in the table to try and find their opposition for tomorrow nights match.

The Rhinos have managed two wins on the bounce and are will be relieved to see England skipper Jamie Peacock back in the nineteen alongside last weeks returnee Danny McGuire.

This could be a stonker of a game.

We preview the game, read more here...

As the nations women spend the day getting slowly plastered in front of the Royal Wedding on TV, and the nations men try to find anything that they can do to avoid it, Rhinos and Tigers fans will be anticipating the five-fifteen kick-off at the Jungle, Probiz, or whatever it is called this week.

It is a massive relief to have Peacock and McGuire both back in contention for squad places. Danny seemed to turn the game when he was brought on against the Crusaders and we seemed to be missing something when he went off. Hopefully he stood up well to the test and Big Mac will be able to start him on friday night. JP is still borderline but the coaching staff are hopeful that he can play some part in the game as he returns to the scene of the injury which has kept him on the sidelines for eight months.

Brent Webb has been cleared to play by the disciplinary after trading punches with Crusader Moore on monday so we are only really short or Ali Lauiti'iti, Kallum Watkins and Ben Jones-Bishop. McDermott names a nineteen of; Webb, Smith, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Cross, Bailey, Kirke, Burgess, Clarkson, and McShane for the trip to fifth placed Castleford.

Although Mattersons season took a dent last week with a last gasp loss to the Saints (unfairly by all accounts as the referee had a stinker), he still has a great squad to choose from. It is a squad who have caused plenty of upsets so far this season but they will be without the injured Fozzard and Huby for the SKY trelevised clash. Dean Widders is back in the named squad after missing out last week and the full nineteen is; Mathers, Dixon, Arundel, Owen, Chase, Orr, Jackson, Clark, Emmitt, Snitch, Ferres, Jones, Milner, Aspinwall, Massey, Thompson, McGoldrick, Holmes, and Widders.

Three Tigers to keep an eye on;




The last time that we played the Tigers was that fateful day in August last year when despite a comfortable 38-06 win we lost Peacock fifteen minutes from the end and Burgess with ninety seconds left on the clock. It was the game which effectively ended our 2010 campaign and left us without two influential forwards for the key Challenge Cup Final and play-off semi-final.

The last time that the Tigers beat us was earlier in 2010 when they won by 24-10 at Headingley.

The last time that the Tigers beat us on their own ground was in March 2008 when they trounced us by 38-20. Their faithful will be hoping that they can end three years of hurt tomorrow night. Prediction
Tigers 24 26 Rhinos

I think that this game should be an absolutre belter. If JP and DM both make the side then we're a match for the home side, but only just a match. I'd have it as too close to call but think that the JP factor might just be enough to get the Rhinos over the finish line.

The weather for tomorrow looks as though it will be dry with temperatures in the low teens so it shoulod be conducive to great open rugby.

Keep everything crossed that the lads can do it, a win by forty-eight or more would be enough to see us up to fifth. But I'm not that optimistic.

Enjoy the matrimonials (if that's your bag - I'll be on the golf course!), travel safe and enjoy the game.
