Tad Rhinos Superleague XIV Previews - Round 25

Three games left to the play-offs and the game of the round sees the Wembley bound Giants travel to top placed Saints, the side they knocked-out in the semi-final.

The Rhinos are up against the Celtic Crusaders who have lost Quinn, Van Dijk, Mapp, Hannay, Dalle Cort and Duggan this week due to visa irregularities. There is no coming back from that and the Rhinos could run up a cricket score.

Here are my thoughts on this weekend's action in Super League XIV, Round 25;

SAINTS v. GIANTS

The really intriguing thing about this game is what approach the Giants will have. They need a performance before Wembley but don't want injuries. They also need the points to finish in the top four. Saints are there for the taking at the moment. Cunningham, while still a class act, is showing his age and injuries are taking there toll on him as he approaches what could well be the last season of a great career. Long, while not as good individually as Eastmond, organises the team far better and guides them around the park well. If Saints had got to Wembley I really think they would have struggled to make the Grand Final, however, the week off will be a godsend to them. The Giants, although understandably poor against the Bulls, will be desperate for a good display and if they go into the game with the correct approach, could well come away with the points. I think with Wembley on the Giants minds though Saints will just edge it in a crackerjack of a game.

WOLVES v. WILDCATS

Wakefield look to be without Danny Brough after his petulant act last week, leaves him free to tarmac a drive or two, and who knows what kind of team Warrington will put out ahead of the final. Like the Giants, the Wolves were awful and understrength last week and will look to play well before Wembley. Another good game in prospect but I think home advantage could swing it for the wolves.

FC v. QUINS

This is the game every RL fan will be overjoyed at the fact SKY have ignored it. A real snoozefest in store for the fools who will go to watch this. A Hull side devoid of class against a 'Quins side who play a lot of safety first percentage rugby. I would rather stick pins in my eyes than watch this rubbish.

CRUSADERS v. RHINOS

It would be churlish to say Cas made Leeds look good last week as the Rhinos were superb. From 1 to 17 the boys were aggresive, hit hard, and every player did their job. I feel the Crusaders have done pretty well this season, injuries have been crippling but they have put the effort in and I hope next season they can aim for 7th or 8th place.

With all of the visa troubles, today though it's a question of how many Leeds win by. As long as we don't get any injuries I would take an easy win, however I can see a big win for the boys.

REDS v. KR

Salford have got some pride back after some heavy and embarrassing defeats and played well to grab the points in London last week. Like the Crusaders they have aquitted themselves well this season and a couple of decent centres next year and they could well make the play offs. Rovers are the blueprint for every promoted team. Build slowly, get the footings in place, and build from the bottom. Not only will they win this they will have a big say in the play offs too.

TIGERS v. WARRIORS

The Tigers were blown away last week as the Champions showed there class while Wigan easily beat an understrength Wolves side. I'm still not convinced about Wigan, they still have that soft underbelly and I can't see them winning away at any of the current top 4 come play off time. The Tigers will be desperate to make amends and I fancy them to come roaring back and win this one.

BULLS v. DRAGONS

According to the muppets on SKY the Bulls could win the SL next season. Bookmark this for reference. If the Bulls finish in the top 4 next season I will do a parachute jump for charity. That's either total confidence or total stupidity. Dragons to win this easily.
