Mouthwatering Weekend of Rugby
Posted by southstander on June 12 2009 - 09:09:38


What a massive weekend of rugby ahead for Rhinos fans.

At 8pm (UK) on saturday night three Rhinos will take to the Stade Jean Bouin pitch in Paris, chests puffed out with pride, to represent England against France.

Then on saturday afternoon the squad that they left behind at Headingley will take on the Huddersfield Giants in the clash of the weekend as third take on fourth with just points difference separating them.

Jamie Peacock must have breathed a massive sigh of relief when the disciplinary committee decided on just a warning letter for 'No swinging arm, player wrong footed and off balance, not malicious'. Their decision cleared the way for JP to lead out his country and lead from the front in what promises to be a challenging match against Bobby Gouldings France side.

Jamie will be joined by Danny McGuire and Ryan Hall in the England seventeen, the latter with his first taste of international rugby league at this senior level and with just thirty-seven first team outings under his belt it is a recognition of this twenty-one years olds real talent.

It will be Dannys ninth England cap and his record speaks for itself. With 578 points in 185 games for the Rhinos, tries at critical times in big games, McGuire must have been one of the first names on the teamsheet of ex-Rhinos coach Tony Smith.

The France side is hit by injury and the England side sees Smith give opportunities to a number of youngsters ahead of the Four Nations in the Autumn (advertising agreement allowing). It should be a great, and even, game and is live on SKY.

As if that isn't enough the Rhinos take on Superleague XIV surprise package Huddersfield Giants in a rare sunday afternoon match with third spot up for grabs. Leeds will be without their England contingent who won't be asked to 'double up', but who will be back at Headingley to watch their team mates. Leeds are also without Ian Kirke who was confirmed as having picked up a leg fracture in France last weekend.

JJB and Rob Burrow are also doubts for Sunday but will be given every chance to make the fixture and are likely to be named in the nineteen released later today. It will be interesting to see who else Bluey drafts into the nineteen but I'd expect Danny Allen, Paul McShane and Liam Watkins to figure.

Expect a bumper crowd in the early summer sunshine for another blockbuster.
