Rhinos Travel to Table Toppers
Posted by southstander on February 12 2010 - 16:15:28

Crazy Frog
Sunday sees the lowly sixth-placed Rhinos travel to table-toppers Wakefield Trinity Wildcats for our second local derby in as many weeks.

John Kears charges have a 100% record thanks to narrow eight-point victories over the 'Quins and the Dragons. Leeds on the other hand will be reeling from the way that they were embarrassed last weekend by the Castleford Tigers and determined to set the record straight this week.

We preview the game here...

Two games into the new season and we've already got a mini injury crisis. Carl Ablett will be out for up to ten weeks with an ankle injury picked up within the first five minutes of last weeks game at Headingley and Brett Delaney is on the treatment table with a knee injury which could see him miss the World Club Challenge in a fortnights time.

Kallum Watkins and Ian Kirke are the two players likely to step into the holes left by these injuries and are joined in the nineteen by Jay Pitts and Kylie Leuluai. Blueys full squad is; Webb, Donald, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauitiiti, Sinfield, Diskin, Eastwood, Bailey, Kirke, Burgess, Pitts and Watkins.

John Kear and his lads must be on cloud nine. They haven't had the hardest start to the season but you can only beat what's in front of you. Terry Newton (injury), Richard Moore (ban) and Matt Blaymire (injury) are all back in contention but Paul Johnson will not figure as he has failed to recover from a bang on the head against the Dragons.

Kear has named his ninteen as; Blaymire, Gleeson, Millard, George, Jeffries, Brough, Tronc, Newton, Korkidas, Ferguson, Morrison, Demetriou, Obst, Henderson, Murphy, King, Leo-Latu, Morton, and Moore.

Three 'Cats to watch;




Wakefield are like Cas, they love nothing more than a win over the Rhinos. They almost managed it last year when they were robbed in the dying second thanks to a Scott Doanld try for a two point win. We thrashed them 44-08 as the ASS in 2008, and were 32-26 winners there in 2007.

In fact, Wakefield have never beaten us in Wakefield during the Superleague era and have only won three times in twenty-seven meeting during the summer era. There are a couple of things that the Wildcats will be looking to put right come 3:30 (not 3:50 as the Official website says) on sunday afternoon. Prediction
Wildcats 18 30 Rhinos

It is likely to be a packed ASS, Belle Vue, or whatever it is called this week. The forcast is for it to be fine if a little chilly although there is snow forcast for monday so lets hope that it doesn't arrive early.

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet' is now on and would net the prize fund 62.42. The bookies have given the Wildcats a six point start on the handicapping but I'm hoping that will not be enough.

See you there and enjoy the game.
