Loiner4Life's SLXIII Round 26 Preview
Posted by southstander on August 22 2008 - 08:45:41

Not L4L!
by Loiner4life

Seventeen points cover the three so-called experts, with only one really living up to the title. Oldham Rhino looks set for minor premiership glory in the overall predictions league, the first time in four years that one of the Baby Rhinos hasn't won it.

For the penultimate time this season, it's time to put our necks on the line once again!

Here are my thoughts on this weekend's action in Super League XIII Round 26.

FC v. QUINS

Hull may well have a few players back from injury in this game but Iím not sure whether bringing them back a week before a Cup Final is the right thing to do, they need a bit of game time to get some sharpness back but itís too little to late for me, Raynor is also back after suspension. Harlequins went down to Hulls Final opponents last week at Home and lost any chance of making the top 6 (baring a miracle) so nothing to play for on show here. Hull have looked pretty dreadful the past few weeks and the second half performance wasnít very good conceding 30 points. Harlequins to win here but hardly expecting a thriller. Harlequins by 6

WARRIORS v. RHINOS

Recent history would suggest a Home win but I just fancy Leeds to come away with 2 points in this game. The general opinion of Stu Fielden is that heís been poor when the cameras are away yet he seems to raise his game when they are present. Pat Richards and Gareth Hock the 2 noticeable absentees for the Pie men while Leeds still without many regulars and have Watkins in contention. Leeds starting to pick a little form and we need this to continue to mount a serious title push. A win here and a large win next week could see us potentially still finish top so Leeds have plenty to go for here, one thing that does concern me is this is possibly Trent Barretís last game at the JJB and he will be wanting to go out with a bang so keep him quiet and weíre in with a shout of winning.

DRAGONS v. WILDCATS

On paper it looks like neither team has anything to play for but here we have the Dragons hoping to hit some form going into the play-offs and a Wakefield team so low on confidence the players must be feeling the heat on if they have a place next season. I donít know how Danny Sculthorpe managed a game this week it just showed the inconsistency of the RFL again. The Dragons snatched 2 points from Huddersfield last week which ended there play-off hopes and Wakefield lost by 10 to the Warriors who had 12 men for much of the game. The passing of Don Fox may raise the game of the Wakefield but I think itís too much to ask. Catalans by 18

TIGERS v. WOLVES

Two shocks last week Warrington having a dreadful 10 minute period in which they lost to Hull KR and the other - visiting a proper stadium was a shock to the Cas fans. Cas still have second from bottom to fight for while Jimmy Lowes looks for a response from the Wire. Terry Matterson will be wanting a much improved performance then the one given against the Rhinos last week with Hull Likely to lose itís game on. Warrington sit on the same points as Wigan and Iíve forgotten how the Home and Away spots are decided in the play-offs but I think they are sitting on a home tie should they lose to Catalans? Anyway I think Warrington will want to keep hold of 4th spot. Wire win by 14

GIANTS v. SAINTS

COME ON THE GIANTS!!!!!!!!. After last weeks shambles of the biggest announcement in the clubs history that honestly did leave me crying with laughter hopefully the concentration will be 100% on the playing side this week. Huddersfield have nothing to play for but as with the others some players will be looking at there position on next years team and wanting contracts or not to be released. Saints - not sure what team will be out, Iíd like to see it before publishing the score. A win almost guarantees top spot for them here and itís hard to see where a loss is going to come from so Huddersfield have there work cut out. Iím going to have hope and go for a Giants narrow win.

BULLS v. KR

Ooooooo... the mouth-watering tie of the round for me a win for KR will see them 1 point behind the bulls with Bradford having to travel to Castleford on the last day of the season. Justin Morgan wanted a better performance last week and he got one. Bradford had a relatively easy run out against Hull last week. The pressure is on them to make the top 6 and if Hull take the lead they will be twitching there bum cheeks a little. Fortunatly for Bradford Hull KR have one of the best away following so they may break 10,000 on Bank Holiday Monday. I hope the Bulls lose but I donít see it to be honest. Bulls by 16
