rhinoms Superleague XVIII Previews - Round 12
Posted by southstander on April 11 2013 - 07:33:11

by rhinoms

It's one of those rounds where looking through the fixtures you might expect one or two very large winning margins. Leeds should register a big win over struggling London, you would have to tip the Wolves for a convincing win over Wakefield, and the Giants should have enough to overcome Hull KR by a decent margin.

There are a couple of games which are far more difficult to call and SKY have selected them for transmission. These are the games at Saints, who welcome the Dragons, and newly managerless Castleford, who entertain the Vikings.

This week it's Round 12 of the SuperLeague the injuries are kicking in and clubs are looking to kick on after the hectic Easter schedule.

Here are this weeks fixtures previewed.


After taking five points out of the last three games the Champs are building their form and growing in confidence despite injuries and suspension.

The visitors arrive knowing they've had good results here over the last couple of years but they are conceding points across the park.

The Blue 'n'Amber have really upped their defence this year and whilst we've seen glimpses of their strike potential they are yet to go through the gears with ball in hand.

I expect the visitors might make it close for an hour considering the efforts of the hosts after the last three games but I think we'll take over in the final twenty minutes and cruise to the win.

The hosts will be desperate to get back to winning ways after a surprise loss at Craven park last week.

The visitors will be tough to beat and after last years amazing comeback will travel with confidence.

The hosts are struggling with injuries to quality players whilst trying to adapt to their new Coach at the same time.

Away from home the visitors are up and down form wise and very unpredictable but i think the hosts desperation will get them the win in a close game.

Saints by 8.

No coach, no direction or structure and no confidence is the best way to sum up the hosts at the moment.

Now although the visitors have suffered one or two blips on the score-board they are much improved in 2013 and have shown they can score plenty of points.

With home favourite Orr in temporary control you'd expect some sort of back-lash and fight from the home team but saying that I don't think they have the quality or confidence to beat the re-born Vikings so the moonshine remains on ice and catching dust for another week.

Vikings by 14.

The Reds had a great win against the Giants on Good Friday but have reverted to the pub team since so what team turns up is still a guessing game.

However after a strong win last week to make it two wins on the trot the visitors trawl into town rebuilding their confidence and looking stronger than they have for a while although that wouldn't be hard.

Still no coach sorted and no real quality on the park is really hindering the hosts so i doubt they will have enough to turn it around this week but they may have a reasonable dig but it wont be enough.

This should be a decent game the hosts return home after scoring plenty of points again last week.

The Pies are the form team of SuperLeague and scoring trys for fun whilst maintaining a strong defensive line.

The hosts will be strong and very confident at home but they still have weakness out wide and that's where I think the visitors have the edge.

A closer game than the Pies have had in recent weeks but they'll still be too strong for the re-surgant hosts.

The home side are playing well and although they relaxed for the final 20 minutes last week they have strike and a decent defence.

For the visitors it's a toss of a coin which team turn up and whether they are interested enough to get stuck in.

Last week we saw a very good Robins side take the points against Saints yet on bank holiday monday we saw a bunch of amateurs give up after 15 minutes.

The hosts will be prepared for the tough Robins that won their respective Derby and won last week which should prove just too strong for the Red half of fish town.

Giants by 14.

The hosts are struggling to put a full 80 minutes together and this week injuries and their enforcer suspended wont help their cause at all.

Although out-played for most of the game the visitors still kept the score close against the Champs last time out so I expect them to up their efforts and show they are still contenders this week.

The home side will show spirit but they are lacking in all areas not least confidence so I think it will be long eighty minutes for home side and their fan base.
