Rhinos Bullish
Posted by southstander on July 19 2012 - 17:24:53

Still There?
A couple of weeks ago, this was looking that a game that might never happen.

The administrator has announced that there is a bid on the table for the beleaguered Bulls from a consortium of local asian businessmen, but that it has a myriad of conditions.

Salaries are being paid, Potter is still at the helm, and the Bulls are playing like a side without a worry in the world. It's fifth against sixth, albeit that the Bulls will be getting some sort of points deduction before the end of the season.

We preview the game, read more here...

It's 2012 honours even between the two sides with a shocking Leeds defeat at Oldslum earlier in the season being followed by a comprehensive win in the away day game at the Etiahad Stadium.

Gary Hetherington has turned philanthropist and allowed the Bulls to keep all of the revenue from their ticket sales through the club, as opposed to the usual ten percent, and it seems like he is looking for beatification in the parish of Bradford as well as that of Leeds. I'm not sure that the same would have happened if the shoe had been on the other foot.

Brent Webb is back in contention for the Rhinos but it would be a travesty if his return cost Hardaker the full-back role. Richard Moore is the other addition to complement the seventeen heroes who confounded the bookies and pundits when they sensationally put Wigan to the sword last saturday.

The nineteen is; Webb, Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Sinfield, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Hauraki, Griffin, Moore, Ward, and Lunt. I suspect that Moore, and probably Ward, will miss out. That's unless Webb is really ready for hsi comeback.

Potter can call on the services of Sammut and Elima after missing them both on the last outing at London, but they will be without John Bateman who is off to Australia to lead England's Academy side.

The Bulls have won three on the bounce, including an impressive victory over the league leaders at the DW Stadium.

Still without the injured skipper Diskin, the nineteen who will be looking to take the points off the Rhinos are; Ainscough, O'Brien, Lulia, Whitehead, Addy, Burgess, Jeffries, C Walker, Hargreaves, Olbison, L'Estrange, Pryce, Platt, Sammut, Gale, Langley, Kearney, Elima, and Manuokafoa.

Three Bullies to keep an eye on;




Leeds have a mixed track record against the Bulls, typified by this seasons results. Back in April the Rhinos were awful, and the Bulls on their game, as the home side won 4-12. At Manchester Magic the Rhinos were on their game for a 37-22 win which at the time lifted us back into the top seven.

Leeds record in the last nine years has been pretty good with eighteen wins, two draws and six losses. Go back to the start of Super League, to the time when the Bulls were a force to be reckoned with then you will find that Leeds are still trailing with twenty-two wins, two draws and twenty-four losses. Prediction
Rhinos 32 14 Bulls

Steve 'Saint' Ganson is in the middle for this one and lets hope he does us as many favours as Thaler did last weekend. The bookies are giving the Bulls a twelve point start on the handicapping and I think that we'll be able to cover that.

Leeds to win, quite comfortably, and I hope that my optimism is well founded.

The forecast is not great for tomorrow with a very high chance of rain leading up to the game, and throughout the eighty minutes.

Travel safe, and enjoy the game.
