Rhinos To Beat the Angry Birds
Posted by southstander on August 03 2012 - 14:30:39

Danny Back
Following Mondays reality check at Belle Vue the Rhinos have to start the ball rolling all over again. Round twenty-three sees us travel to the east coast to take on Sandercocks' Hull KR.

Our hosts managed to scrape a win at the Vikings last weekend after a run of four consecutive losses, but Leeds haven't won at Craven Park for three seasons.

The good news is we'll have Danny McGuire back in the side as he returns from suspension.

We preview the game, read more here...

We have the novelty of a Sunday afternoon kick-off which will go down well with the traditionalists and hopefully plenty of Rhinos fans will look to make it a day at the seaside.

Brent Webb is the latest Rhinos player to feel the wrath of the disciplinary committe and will sit out the next two matches through suspension after a high tackle committed three minutes into his comeback game last Monday. After also giving away a handful of petulent penalties in that comeback game he must wonder whether he'll ever pull on a first team shirt again.

McGuire is joined in the squad by Ablett, Delaney and Ryan Bailey who all return after injury. Jimmy Keinhorst has deservedly kept his spot but Richard Moore and Weller Hauraki have paid the price of Monday night mediocrity.

Big Mac's nineteen is; Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Clarkson, Griffin, Ward, Lunt, and Keinhorst.

Hull KR have named their nineteen as; Salter, Peterson, Lovegrove, Horne, Heil, O'Hara, Webster, Galea, Clinton, D Hodgson, J Hodgson, Paea, Sheriff, Murrell, Dobson, Taylor, Latus, Griffin, and Withers.

Three Robins to keep an eye on;




KR have a chance of moving into the top eight, so long as they beat us and the Giants lose at home to the Dragons after losing five on the bounce, and ten their last eleven.

The Rhinos won the Superleague XVII opener against KR back in February by 34-16 thanks to a Watkins hat-trick, although we'd only been two points ahead at half-time.

During the Super League era the Rhinos have seven wins and four losses in games against the Robins, although at Craven Park both sides have picked up three wins. This isn't a nailed on Rhinos win by any means. Prediction
KR 14 28 Rhinos

I've tipped a Rhinos win, although after Mondays implosion I am not that confident. I think that the lads have already got one eye on Wembley, and they've taken it off the important jostling for positions and play-off places. The bookies are less optimistic than my prediction giving KR a six point start on the coupon.

The forecast is for showers with a thirty percent chance that we'll get wet. Temperatures may touch twenty degrees but I suspect that it will feel colder than that.

Hopefully the lads got a reality check on Monday, and that they will now re-focus their efforts for the business end of the season.

See you there.
