Stopping the Rot

Another embattled coach
Over the next nine days we take on the Agars Airlie Birds twice. Tonight in Superleague XVI at Headingley and next sunday at the KC Stadium in the Challenge Cup.

We've not lost a game to Hull since 2007 but a struggling Rhinos side, now down to eighth in the league, is looking up the table at their Humberside opponents for the first time in a long time.

Can Leeds win back-to-back games, we take a look at round one.

The 'man living on borrowed time' will be desperate for his sides to put in a good performance, but will he be bothered about the win? If he was happy with the way that we showed up against Wigan a fortnight ago he must have been suicidal about the way we performed in the south of France last weekend.

Kylie Leuluai and Brent Webb are both missing from the Leeds line up which is likely to mean Smith at full back and Hardaker/Hall on the wings with Delaney switching back to centre from second row alongside Carl Ablett.

Leeds revised nineteen is; Smith, Delaney, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Lauiti'iti, Bailey, Kirke, Hauraki, Clarkson, Pitts, Jones-Bishop, McShane and Hardaker.

For Agar it is all about who is returning rather than who is absent. FC supporters will be pleased to see Obst and Fitzgibbon nack in the side and the only real risk is Richard Horne who will have a fitness test today to see if he has recovered from a slight groin strain.

The nineteen that the visitors will bring are; Briscoe T., Dowes, Fitzgibbon, Horne, Houghton, Lauaki, Manu, Moa, Obst, O'Meley, Phelps, Radford, Sharp, Tickle, Turner, Washbrook, Westerman, Whiting, and Yeaman.

Three Airlie Birds to watch;




The Airlie Birds have won four out of their last five matches and have racked up over fifty points in two of those. A Leeds win, and a Tigers loss would see the Rhinos back to sixth, but with the banjo players away to the fake Welshmen it looks like they could have two points in the bag on saturday night.

The Rhinos won the away game in Superleague XVI by a comfortable 32-18 which at the time saw the Rhinos with a 100% record.

The last time that Leeds lost to Hull FC in Superleague was back in Superleague XII (2007) when FC won two out of three meetings that season, the one game at the KC finishing 16-12. In 2010 Leeds won the game at the KC by a narrow 18-14 winning margin after trailing until the 70th minute. Earlier in the season we won the game at Headingley in a high scoring encounter which finished 46-30.

In the Superleague era FC have won eight times, Leeds twenty and the sides have played out that solitary draw. Prediction
Rhinos 28 14 FC

Dickie Silverwood is in the middle with Ian Smith in the video referees box. At least Steve 'Saint' Ganson will have no role to play in tonights result. I think that the Rhinos will win this one, but I am less certain about next weeks game in the cup.

There is the chance of some scattered showers tonight but the heavier rain should hold off until after the final hooter.

Enjoy the game and keep everything crossed for the win.
