Push for the Play-Offs
Posted by southstander on July 17 2009 - 11:18:16

If you want to see tonights game then you'd better get to Headingley early as the 6.3 million supporters that KR take to every away match will be crammed into the Western Terrace and looking to spread elsewhere in the ground.

Leeds need to points to keep the push on Saints, KR need them to keep ahead of the chasing pack.

We preview the game here...

It's second against fourth in what could, once again, be tie of the round but the SKY cameras have chosen to leave us alone tonight instead picking Knowsley Road for the televised game. The Robins have only won two out of their last seven games but will have breathed a sigh of relief last weekend when they gave the woeful Bulls a hammering, while we struggled to victory against the Wildcats.

The Rhinos are unchanged from last week with the only difference in the nineteen being the inclusion of Watkins in place of Ashley Gibson. Ryan Bailey is still injured/out of favour and there are strong rumours linking him with a move to our country cousins for Superleague XV. The nineteen is; Webb, Donald, Smith, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauitiiti, Sinfield, Diskin, Ablett, Burgess, Worrall, Watkins, and Ratu.

KR have ex-Rhinos Fozzard, dropped a fortnight ago, and Netherton who has recovered from a shoulder injury returning to the nineteen. Ben Cockayne is in the nineteen and may need to step in for Shaun Briscoe who is aslo suffering a niggling shoulder injury. Recent speculation about a Paul Cooke return to FC seems to have died down but could still be unsettling the squad. Morgans nineteen are; Briscoe, Fox, Welham, Webster, Colbon, Cooke, Dobson, Vella, Fisher, Wheeldon, Newton, Galea, Murrell, Lovegrove, Fitzhenry, Walker, Fozzard, Netherton, and Cockayne. Three ex-Rhino Robins to watch;




The Rhinos won both of last seasons games against the Robins and this seasons Round 2 encounter at Craven Park. Last years win at Headingley, early in the season, was a close affar finishing 20-12. It is well over twenty years since KR have won at Headingley, but this season has seen enough records go south for us to want to protect this one.

It's five games since the KR last beat us, back in March 2007, lets hope that we can stretch it to six. Prediction
Rhinos 30 23 KR

This could be a high scoring game, especially with the leaky Rhinos defence that we saw last week at Belle Vue. I think we'll win this one but I am not sure that it will be as comprehensive as it should be. I'm just not sure that we've really hit top form yet and this would be exactly the kind of fixture that would trip us up.

It is looking very unsummery tonight with a strong chance of rain throughout the match. The millions from east Hull will need to be packed in tight to keep themeselves as dry as possible.

The bookies are giving KR a twelve points start on the coupon but I think that it will be closer than that.

Enjoy the game.

See you there.
