And then there were six!|
It's Round Two of the play offs this week and from now on it's a straight knock
out comp so last weeks losers get their second and final chance whilst the two
lowest place winners travel away in the hope of maintaining their winning
Here are this weeks previews.
GIANTS v. FC
The league leaders will look for 100% improvement after fluffing their lines
during week one when the Pies outplayed them.
For McBrough and co this is their chance to bounce back and show why they
won the Hub-Cap.
The Cods trawl into to town on the back of a hard fought win against the
mis-firing Dragons and will travel with confidence after a tough defensive
Both have shown some good defence at times this year but it's the hosts who
have the flair and pace with ball in hand and I think they will have too
much as long as they don't lose their composure and get stage fright like
Giants by 14.

RHINOS v. SAINTS
The defending Champs return to HQ on the back of a comprehensive beating at
the hands of 2nd placed Wire last time out.
Everything that could have gone wrong did last week for the Blue 'n' Amber
their defence had more holes in it than a T-bag and they looked like part
time strangers 85% of the time with ball in hand.
For the visitors they didn't need to get out of 1st gear as Roby lead them
with to a crushing win over also rans HKR and whilst they didn't face the
hardest opponents the plastic Scousers are looking sharp and like real GF
contenders now they have their injured stars back.
Defence and Composure should be the buzz words for the hosts because both
need to match our previous play off best to win this.
With Roby a real threat and the pace in which ST's attack V the JP lead
Rhinos pack ,Burrows unpredictability and their exciting young outside backs
its going to be a great game as long as both bring their A game.
A tough game to call but knock out play off RL is when the Rhinos are at
their most dangerous add in a poor defeat and home advantage that's when the
hosts show WHY they have won so many GF's recently.
