Rhinos Look For FC Repeat
Posted by southstander on July 23 2011 - 17:22:15

A little happier
In last weeks opener of the Hull FC double header the Rhinos nilled their visitors in a battle of two poor sides which saw the Rhinos emerge victorious with the points.

Sunday afternoon sees the second installment as the Rhinos visit the KC Stadium with a place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals up for grabs.

Will last week tell us anything?

The bookies have given the Airlie Birds a four point start on the handicap coupon and that after the Rhinos ran out twenty point winners last week. I think that they are right, there is little to choose between these sides and there is no way that Hull can play as badly as they did last week.

Kylie Leuluai and Brent Webb are both back in the Rhinos side after missing last week through injury. Paul McShane and Lee Smith, both non-playing from last weeks ninteen are the ones to drop out. I'd expect both Leuluai and Webb to make the seventeen but only McDermott will know who will miss out.

The ninteen is; Webb, Delaney, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Lauiti'iti, Bailey, Kirke, Hauraki, Clarkson, Pitts, Jones-Bishop, and Hardaker. Last weeks Hull side were absolutely appalling and made a poor Rhinos performance look like we were world beaters. Richard Agar will have been working hard with them this week and there is no way that they can make as many mistakes, or be as impotent going forwards.

The home side will be without the inspirational Fitzgibbon who suffered a reoccurence of an injury last week which saw him with minimal game time. Youngster Reece Lyne steps into the ninteen man squad which looks like; Briscoe. T, Dowes, Horne, Houghton, Lauaki, Lyne, Manu, Moa, Obst, O’Meley, Phelps, Radford, Sharp, Tickle, Turner, Washbrook, Westerman, Whiting, and Yeaman.

Three Airlie Birds to watch;




Leeds and Hull FC have met five times in the Challenge Cup since 2000 and FC have only been victorious on one occasion, that horrendus day in Cardiff in 2005 when we lost by a solitary point and FC picked up the famous trophy. On the two occasions we have met at quarter final stage, in the last ten years, the Rhinos have emerged victorious and we knocked them out in the fourth round on our way to Wembley last year.

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-one and the sides have played out that solitary draw.

Last weeks 20-0 win teaches us very little about what will happen in this one. Prediction
FC 12 18 Rhinos

The forecast for tommorow is for it to be a little cloudy but there isn't much chance of rain. It should be great conditions for rugby league.

Enjoy the game, travel safe and keep everything crossed for the win and progression into the semi-finals.
