Rhinos Seek Confidence Boost
Posted by southstander on February 19 2010 - 12:00:18

I think a bit less arrogance and more humility needs to be in evidence in this weeks match preview after what has happened to us in the last fortnight.

This weeks challenge is the Salford City Reds, only kept off the bottom of the table by the suffering Bradford Bulls, who up until shocking us at Headingley last April had never won a game against the Rhinos in the Superleague era.

We preview the game here...

The Rhinos are likely to be unchanged from the side that crashed to the Wildcats last sunday as they look to regain some confidence ahead of the World Club Challenge at Ellend Road in nine days time. Delaney and Ablett are still injured, and likely to be for some time. Luke Burgess will be hoping for a recall to the seventeen and may get a run. This nineteen have something to prove to themselves as well as us.

Bluey puts his hopes in; Webb, Donald, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Diskin, Eastwood, Bailey, Kirke, Burgess, Pitts, and Watkins.

If McClennan is having a bad dream, the other Macca (McRae) is having a nightmare. The Reds were the first victims of Brian Nobles Crusaders last week when a home banker ended up with a twenty point reverse.

Adam Sidlow is in to replace Cashmere who picked up a knock last week and Mark Henry and Willie Talau are in the reckoning to make their Salford debuts. Stuart Littler will also be hoping that he gets the nod after missing out last week. McRaes hopes are in; Fitzpatrick, Broughton, Henry, Talau, Gibson, Ratchford, J. Smith, Sidlow, Alker, Parker, Sibbit, Adamson, Swain, M. Smith, Littler, Leuluai, Tyrer, Holdsworth, and Boyle.

Three Reds to watch;




Salford upset the Champions on their last visit to Headingley with a 30-20 win, their first over us during the Superleague era. Both teams have lost two games so far this season with the Reds crashing to the Crusaders and Hull KR while the Rhinos lost to the Tigers and the Wildcats. Both sides will be desperate to end a two game Superleague XV losing streak, and you would hope that Leeds are the ones most likely to do this. Prediction
Rhinos 36 18 Reds

The forcast is for it to be sunny this afternoon and fine this evening but a chance of some snow moving in as we head towards the end of the match. One thing is for sure - it will be damn cold!

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet' is now on and would net the prize fund 450.64 as we have taken one handicap draw on the Warrington game. The bookies have given the Reds a disrespectful 22 point start on the handicaps, I do hope that they are right.

See you there and enjoy the game.
