Robins to Rock?
Posted by Number 2 on June 11 2011 - 02:37:03

Getting Better
There can't be many more miserable places in sport at the present time than Headingley.

The Rhinos 2011 season is rapidly turning into a total embarrassment for players, administrators and fans alike as Leeds struggle to pick up anything other than hammerings at the hands of sides we were swiping aside just a couple of years ago.

And Sunday sees no respite as a newly confident Hull KR side look to do the Rhinos double.

You'd like to think that the only way is up for the Rhinos. But even myself, a glass half full person, feels that the season is over and it is time to make the changes and build for 2012. This week GH sticks with the hapless McDermott/Lowes partnership, although the P45s must be under consideration. He may though advise them not to impart their words of half-time wisdom.

Big Mac has chosen a ninteen of; Webb, Smith, Delaney, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Lauitiiti, Bailey, Kirke, Burgess, Hauraki, McShane, Hardaker

The visitors will still be on a high from beating the Airlie Birds in the Hull derby last weekend and Morgans side, now without the disruptive influence of Mason, will be looking for a double over the Rhinos that could lift them into the top eight.

Liam Colbon made his comeback last weekend and will figure again and Dobson is an addition to the side which beat us by ten points back in round nine. Jason Netherton has just signed a new two year contract to boost his confidence and Murrell, Briscoe and Murrell all had big games last week.

Morgan names a nineteen of; Briscoe, Cook, Cockayne, Colbon, Dobson, Newton, Fisher, Galea, Green, Hodgson, Lovegrove, Watts, Murrell, Netherton, Vella, Wheeldon, Hall, Welham, Taylor

Three Robins to keep an eye on;




KR did the double over the Rhinos last season with a 25-06 win at Craven Park in July following a 17-10 win at Headingley in March. Some early season poor form for the Robins has led to them being even more inconsistent than the Rhinos but they have won five out of their last seven games.

Leeds have won six out of the ten Superleague meetings between the two sides but there is no certainty that we'll improve on that statistic on sunday. Prediction
Rhinos 14 26 KR

I'm really concerned about the current way that we are playing. After appearing to turn the corner a few weeks ago we are now back to playing worse than we were earlier in the season. How we can put in a decent first-half and follow it up with total second half capitulation is beyond me, and obviously beyond the players and coaching staff.

I'm afraid that we'll be giving up the two points on Sunday to rapturous booing from the South Stand.

It's looking a bit miserable over the weekend. Hopefully that may be to our advantage.

Take care getting to the game and keep everything crossed that it is a better Rhinos which show up.
