rhinoms Superleague XVII Previews - Round 8
Posted by southstander on March 22 2012 - 07:52:45

by rhinoms

Saints losing heralded the departure of Royce Simmonds from Langtree Park, one week ahead of the high-flying Rhinos first ever visit to the new stadium. It was also the only game which rhinoms failed to predict the correct outcome of.

There were a couple of close shaves though as only a seventh tackle try from Warrington saved their blushes against the Wildcats and Wigan were given a much sterner test by the Broncos than anyone could have predicted.

What surprises will this weeks round of fixtures provide?

Read more here....

We enter round eight this week and already we have our first Super League coaching casualty, and funnily enough it's our next opponents who have pulled the trigger. That should add extra "spice" to the fixture.

Here are this weekends Previews.

WARRIORS v. WOLVES

A huge clash in store at the gravy pit this week when two of the SL big guns meet.

The visitors have a decent record here and will be confident after returning to winning ways albeit by two points last week.

The home side too enjoyed a winning feeling last time out after previous humiliation against the wooden spoon mob.

Both sides need to improve defensively the home side maybe more so because they again let thirty points in whereas for the visitors it was a first this year.

An end-to-end power battle in store and hopefully the quality will match the expected intensity but I think the Wire will have too much bite.

BULLS v. REDS

The battered Reds visit the RFL commode this week and do so on the back of a good hiding at the hands of the World champs last week.

Surprisingly the home side have now won in front of their own fans (at last) and are now looking to build for a top eight challenge.

The home side are starting to really grind consistent winning performances together and this week the visitors have a tough task.

I expect the visitors to improve 100% on last weeks mauling not least because they aren't up against anywhere near the same class this time out but I doubt it will be enough.

Whispering Potter will send his team out to grunt and grind again and that should be just enough for the spoils this week.

TIGERS v. FC

Millwards' Country Bumpkins return home this week on the back of a Rugby League lesson in Huddersfield last time out.

The visitors skate into town on the back of a pasting dished out to the bottom team at home.

The beatings are mounting up for the hosts and they will be desperate to put a performance in they can build on.

I think the Tiggers will show more bite and get their (webbed) claws into the Pollacks of the visitors but won't have enough Prawn to finish the job.

KR v. GIANTS

The high flying Giants visit the red half of cods-ville this week after another comfortable win.

The home side are improving and scoring some points but the noise is coming more from their whining flat nosed coach.

For the visitors their coach seems to be busy denying where he is going at the end of the season but he will have his FRS, AT and Pug ready for this.

Two big packs meeting could see plenty of fireworks and powerful confrontations but I think the confidence and finishing power of the visitors will be enough.

Another ok effort from chelpingcocks' lads but no winning "maggot" bonus.

Giants by 12.

SAINTS v. RHINOS

A visit to our Grand Final play-things this week for the Champs and they've already ditched their coach, so expect then to be extra determined after losing four in a row, and I don't mean GF's to us.

After dishing out a Rugby League lesson in a new stadium last week we again enter a new ground and a home team short on confidence.

With Foster too busy checking out his hair, Meli just been Meli, and add in the departure of the Strawberry Blonde and injured Machine it's a very different looking Saints.

However we've been left on bricks far too often to take this game for granted and hopefully will play to our potential and get the points.

With hometown Messiah and Rush in charge expect a much improved home team not least with the expected return of Roby but still not enough to stop a Blue 'n' Amber win.

Rhinos by 10.

WILDCATS v. DRAGONS

After a heartbreaking two point loss last week the Wildcats need to re-group and re-focus because they face a good team in form this week.

The Dragons are firing and looking strong so they will see this as another two points towards their top five march.

Much depends on what the home team can offer they've done well at certain parts in most games but still not got a full eighty minute performance together. IF they can do that they'll trouble the visitors if not it could all over come half time.

Agars misfits will put their all in but not enough to douse the Dragons fire and Deureu will lead his team to the points.

Dragons by 16.

VIKINGS v. BRONCOS

It was "back to earth with a bump" as reality struck the Vikings in a 50+ point mauling last week after their heroics against the arrogant Pies the week before.

The Broncos did OK scoring thirty points away at the Wire but still conceded 40+ which will worry the coach and proves they still can't defend.

Luckily for the southern visitors this week they get the chance to add points into their plus column when visiting the worse team in the Super League.

For out of his depth Betts the clock is ticking towards his P45 and it may not be much longer arriving after this week.

Not a 50+ this week but still enough kick to give out a hiding.
