Blueys Boys to 'Educate' Thackray
Posted by southstander on July 03 2009 - 08:54:38

Cod Father
It's just over a month since the Rhinos thrashed the Airlie Birds at Headingley and we are once again the bookies favourite for a big win with the Hull side being given a dozen points start.

The big difference to that game is that this time we are at the KC Stadium, and it is the one game each season for which Hull pull out all the stops.

Add to that the spice of Jamie Thackrays recent outburst and you have the recipe for what could be a cracker on the east coast.

We preview the game here...

The p****, according to Jamie Thackray, has the headache of being without his international full-back Brent Webb due to neckache. Brent picked up an injury in last weeks win and hasn't recovered sufficiently to play. Jamie Jones-Buchanan is also cleared to play on saturday afternoon after being warned by the disciplinary committee for a late challenge.

Diskin is back in the nineteen after not making the seventeen last week. He is likely to make the seventeen this week. Worrall and Ratu look like they are making up the numbers in a nineteen of; Donald, Smith, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauitiiti, Sinfield, Diskin, Bailey, Ablett, Burgess, Gibson, Worrall, and Ratu.

Richard Agar has a few problems. His team are down in ninth place and struggling for one of the last play-off berths. He has lost Motu Tony for this round nineteen fixture. And, he has been forced to bring Chris Thorman back into his side after he was withdrawn at half-time at Headingley five weeks ago after being ripped apart.

If ever a man singled himself out for some 'special treatment' it is Jamie Thackray after his bizarre and unprofessional outburst against his former coach earlier this week. His team mates must love him for the extra motivation that he has given McClennans current charges to get one up for their boss. It will be an interesting meeting if the two get within ten feet of one another.

Agars nineteen are; Berrigan, Broughton, Burnett, G. Horne, R. Horne, Yeaman, Raynor, Radford, Tickle, Thorman, Lee, Houghton, Moa, Maloney, Hodgson, King, Manu, Thackray, and Whiting.

Three Black and Whites to watch;




The teams have met twice this season. The first was a pre-season friendly at Headingley in January for Jamie Jones-Buchanan and the visitors won 20-16 and the second was the classy 46-16 win five weeks back. Last season the Rhinos won 30-04 at the KC Stadium on Easter Monday in what was one of the performances of the season.

In the return game at Headingley the Rhinos were trailing 18-4 at half time before a second half recovery saw the Rhinos run out 38-22 winners.

The last time that we lost at the KC was over two years ago when they got a 16-12 win. 2007 was a good year for FC as they won two from three that year. Prediction
Rhinos 28 20 Hull FC

I suspect that this game will be closer than everyone, bookies included, are imagining. On paper and recent for we should win big but in games like this the formbook can be thrown out of the window. There will be a lot of guts and determination from the home side and we will need to be really hungry to get the points.

The bookies are likely to give the home side between 10 and 14 start and I would probably be lumping on them at that.

The forecast for tomorrow looks pretty good with only a small chance of isolated showers increasing as the afternoon wears on.

The Leeds lads will wear black arm bands to pay their respects to academy player Andrew Curwell who passed away at the weekend.

See you there and enjoy the game.
